Antique Persian Sultanabad BB7638 12'5" × 14'3" $50,000
This antique Persian Sultanabad rug features multiple borders, an all-over botanical design, and its main border is made up of a flowering climber with distinct palmettes. The main field displays a winding thicket of a multitude of botanical motifs, each with its own, unique meaning. Because Sultanabad rugs have a more supple weave, the design is grand-scale and not very intricate. We see individual floral compositions bloom in muted colors, including beige, blue, green, red and yellow, to contrast with the main field’s dark background. Antique Persian Sultanabad rugs are handmade creations of wool, made in accordance with traditional techniques dating back to the 19th century.
