Classically Rustic Room Size Antique 19th Century Persian Sultanabad Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th CenturyAntique Persian Sultanabad rugs like this are renowned for their use of classic Persian rug design amidst the bolder, more large-scale graphic effects of village rug weaving. But they seldom manage to preserve intact the underlying unity or structure of the classical prototypes as this one does. Here a continuous design of interlacing arabesque vines and palmettes in ivory, soft green, and blue sprawl across the rich terracotta field. Similar vines and palmettes comprise the main border, but here they are set against a navy ground that frames the field with the bold contrast of the classical forerunners. The quality of the color here is first rate, even among the very finest Sultanabads.
