CU-1198 - Antique Persian Sultanabad Rug

8ft 04in X 13ft 04in

Sultanabad-Mahal-Ziegler Rugs

Circa: 1890

This is a most attractive Sultanabad carpet from northwest Persia with a currently highly desirable ivory field. The pattern is a double layer lattice with palmettes, rosettes, stiff hooked leaves and tiny buds. The largest palmettes have unusual chevron interior color sampler rectangles. The navy main border displays an angular turtle palmette design perfectly in sync with the field. The rust and yellow minors have rosette and vine, and boteh and vine patterns, respectively. The palette includes two shades of yellow, terra cotta, mid-blue, pale green and two shades of dark blue. All the colors are produced from natural dyes and there has been no artificial manipulation of the colors
