M794 - Antique Persian Sultanabad Rug
11ft 02in X 16ft 03in
This attractive decorative carpet is probably a product of the Ziegler Company a major English firm active in Sultanabad in the 1880-1930 periods. The slate blue field is continuously but spaciously filled with unusual palmette angular vine segments and oddly zoomorphic elements in contrast to the mobile filed. The narrow light brown main border is more grounded with symmetric palmettes and attendant small leaves. There are small ivory field corners hinting of largely unseen repeating medallions . This carpet works well with the traditional design or with a more eclectic shabby chic décor.
