Antique Sultanabad Persian Carpet from Persia, late nineteenth centurySpacious wave-like floral forms curve again and again across the surface of this lavish antique Sultanabad, reducing the deep blue ground to little more than a bold outline that delineates the lovely pastel-colored ornament. Rich palmettes spiral and undulate, creating boteh or paisley shapes as they curl back upon themselves. The lovely red-ground border contains repeating wreaths of rosettes and delicate, angular branches, contrasting beautifully with the larger scale and motion of the field pattern. Grand yet light, this carpet projects a richly decorative effect with the utmost restraint.
