This spectacularly beautiful antique Persian Oriental rug is offered for sale, because one of our staged homes has sold. This oriental rug is called a SULTANABAD and it has a slightly TRIBAL design. This SULTANABAD is from the 1930's, so it is about 75-80 years old, and in fantastic condition. It was hand-knotted in the city of Malayer, Iran, and it is in excellent condition, with a still very rich and understatedly vibrant color pallet. The exact size is 13.2x10.1, (so roughly an 13x10 sized piece), and it features a rich pale brick red field with small geometrics over the entirety of the field. This is a stunning piece. Accent colors include: navy, medium blue, golden brown, tobacco brown, a hint of creamey-maize, bright cobalt blue, forest, leaf green, crimson, and some ivory. The rug was constructed of vegetable dyed wools for a softer, richer look than the harsher looking/less expensive, chemical dyed rugs. It has a regal richness to it. Truly a beautiful and unique piece, with a very traditional design that can be used in many ways. This rug is hand-woven, and features 140 KPSI (knots per square inch), with a total of about 3,800,000 knots, and it took about 3500 hours of labor to hand knot this piece, to construct it. It is of excellent quality, consistent with what we would expect in a very good quality Persian Oriental rug. We selected this rug for its beautiful and impressive design, and it would be fantastic in a hallway, or in an entry way, a study or office, a kitchen, in a rear entry, or also in a bedroom (next to one side of the bed or at the foot of the bed) . Because it's design is understated, and featuring traditional elements, it would be compatible in a traditional, transitional, or contemporary setting. It would also work very well in a modern setting as the touch of "art" or the shot of color to set off the more monotone colors and all the modern pieces. This rug is one of several rugs that we used to stage a very upper bracket home for sale (as mentioned above). This SULTANABAD's rich design set a tone of understated elegance in the home we staged. It is a beautiful piece for someone who wants an understatedly impressive rug that will enhance their home. At retail this rug is about $6800; JUST $1275 here, but cash only, please. Email or text me to view it, or call me.
Thanks.
