Antique Sultanabad, Persia, late nineteenth centuryA grandly monumental design of interlacing vines and palmettes in autumnal shades of gold, terracotta, and soft blue unfolds dramatically across the black field of this stunning antique Sultanabad. A diamond-like configuration of vines provides a sort of latent medallion within the centralized composition. The border of palmettes and floral sprays set against a terracotta ground provides the perfect contrast of color and scale to the field design, complementing bold graphic effect of the field with a more delicate approach. The lovely wool of the pile adds a tactile dimension to the luxurious design and palette.
