Antique Persian Sultanabad Gray, Beige, Carmine and Copper Handwoven Wool Rug BB6484 9'4" × 12'0" $12,000
Antique Sultanabad carpets are among the most desirable Persian antique carpets to be produced in the late 19th and early 20th century. This very piece is a fine example of the exceptional Sultanabad craftsmanship from the dawn of the bygone era. What immediately catches attention is the impressive size of the carpet, perfect for ample spaces or allover interior décors. Its moderate yet impressive main field incorporates a bold and highly decorative floral medallion, complemented by four spandrels, one in each corner.
The field is enclosed within a series of as many as seven opulent borders which perfectly correspond with the much plainer central arrangement. The very last border is also left untouched by a pattern which additionally balances the design. In terms of colors, the antique Persian rug relies on light slate gray in the background, paired with beige, camel, copper, carmine, mocca and dark slate gray present in the pattern.
As befits a sublime Sultanabad creation, the carpet was meticulously hand-woven of the finest wool in accordance with old and refines weaving techniques which ensured its durability and uniqueness. If properly cared for, the antique rug will undoubtedly serve its owners for generations without the slightest signs of blemish.
