Large Size Antique Persian Sultanabad Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This impressive and truly grand antique Oriental rug – a Sultanabad rug made in Persia some time toward the end of the nineteenth century – is truly an achievement in rug-making. This BLANK piece possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors of such rugs, and would make a proud addition to any home. Gracefully drawn flowers bloom across the soft red field of this antique Persian Sultanabad rug in a design of bi-lateral symmetry. An undulating vine runs between palmettes in the dark blue border; this curve-linear framing element complements the fluidity of the field. The overall effect is one of effortlessness: a floral design that is delicate without being fussy. All in all, this is a piece that is not to be missed. Its elaborate design and stunning composition make it not only a highly desirable antique rug, but a genuine work of art.
