Vice President Joe Biden Official Residence Dining Room Rug From Nazmiyal
The Antique Sultanabad Rug, Persia, Late 19th Century is an exuberant allover design of swaying, leafy vines and palmettes in shades of ivory and soft apricot repeats in perfect symmetry across the soft blue field of this impressive antique Sultanabad carpet.
The vine scroll border is fine and wispy, providing an excellent contrast to the fleshier proportions of the field pattern, just as its apricot ground complements the soft blue of the field. Sultanabads like this are prized not only for their animated drawing or design, but also for their savvy use of color, and here it is the lovely palette that really makes this antique carpet spectacular!
