Square Size Antique Sultanabad Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – A dynamic yet delicate mesh of soft green arabesque tendrils arranged as staggered hexagonal cartouches repeats rhythmically across the champagne field of this elegant antique Sultanabad. Yet the arabesques recede subtly into a scatter of small flowers that fill the intervening spaces, creating a lacy overall effect. The border of smaller, more finely worked arabesques shares the same color arrangement as the field , imparting unity to the overall design while still varying it.
