A highly desirable and stunning over-size antique Sultanabad with all the delightful features of its kind. The boldly drawn all over large-scale palmettes and tendrils that adorn its field and main border have a wonderfully whimsical quality to them that hints at this magnificent rug’s tribal roots. Motifs that serve as mirror images of each other on both sides of the field are not necessarily identical in size or color yet their flowing outlines come together to create a dramatic sense of movement and draw viewer’s eyes in. The apparent symmetry of design proves to be a playful illusion under which a more quirky element of style operates and reveals itself in smaller, charming details such as the four different corners of the field hiding in plain sight next to the orderly guard strips.

The warm and earthy tones of this lovely rug exude softness that gains more depth and becomes even more visually striking thanks to its masterfully executed color striations (abrash). The lovely gradual turn of colors in the main border from warm olive green to dark teal and back and an even more subtle change of color in the field between red, rust and apricot are truly amazing feats of weaving.
