An antique, highly decorative, over-size Mahal Sultanabad that depicts a luxurious, happy garden of beautiful irises, roses, peonies, lotuses, dainty blossoms and graceful stems and leafy vines scrolling through creating a lovely ripple effect and soft movement. Its main border continues the floral theme and is overlaid with lotuses and blossoming branches.

Although the gorgeous overall floral design is densely-spaced, it manages to retain a light and airy feel thanks to the crisp outlines of the individual motifs. Each motif is given beautiful nuance through a painterly attention to color that keeps the light flowing through the whole rug and helps capture a spirit of joy and happiness.

The luminous imperial red background is stunning to look at and its grandeur is only enhanced with the deft application of delightful jewel tone color hues such as light peach, olive green, emerald and opal. Although this magnificent Mahal Sultanabad features a wealth of colors and an abundance of florals that evoke a fascinating garden in all its splendor, its vividness is rendered in a way to express softness, gracefulness and a tender sensuality. This aura of genuine elegance would make this stunning piece a highly desirable addition to any room’s decor.
