Antique Persian Sultanabad Rug BB4148
Antique Persian Sultanabad Rug Description:
A late 19th century Persian rug from Sultanabad the cocoa brown field with an allover design of leafy vinery stepped lozenges containing flowerheads, within a golden yellow palmette and acanthus leaf border.
Sultanabad rugs are identifiable via the creative and artistic use of overall palmette, vine-scroll and floral-themed curvilinear designs. Their designs are large-scale, detailed and grandiose, absolutely correspondent to equally magnificent size of antique rugs from Sultanabad. The color tones are very often of eye- popping vibrancy yet that’s not the rule – sometimes the palettes are chromatic and striking, some other times subtly faded and subdued. Sultanabad is now current called Arak, and it is located in Iran, the former Persia. The weaving region was founded in the early 1800’s, and was purposely developed to mass-produce artisanal-level decorative carpets designed for the western market.
