This sophisticated rug from Persia features an impressive allover Herati pattern surrounded by delicate guardbands and wide main borders decorated with radiant medallions and a variety of complex floral bouquets. The fantastic main borders feature clear burnt sienna details set over a soft Persian blue background while the field is decorated with detailed Mahi patterns arranged in a dense allover composition. Each Herati motif features polychromatic leaves with plume-like contours, flame-like palmettes and delicately colored vinescrolls. The carefully colored motifs and saturated borders contrast the clear ivory field, which enhances the detailed floral motifs and precise Herati pattern, a predominant design in the Sultanabad region.
