We are proud to have this 19th Century West Central Persian and it sure aims to please. As some of the most desirable of Persian village weavings and with many reasons why, Sultanabads are the elite of Mahal rugs, with sophisticated and unique design. They’re highly sought out for their amazing decorative aesthetic and style and they stand through time as the most amazing examples of art and history. This amazing piece was hand woven with all natural vegetable dyes circa 1860-1880.
It features jaw dropping art, color ways and after all this time, the wool is still considered soft. If you're looking at this rug, you're probably taken back by all of the motifs throughout the rug...it is stunning and whimsical and beautifully worn, showing off its age and character quite profoundly.
The exquisite vegetable dyes have aged gracefully and various shades can be seen throughout the time traveled rug. The palette speaks to us, telling us more about why this rug is distinguished and the highest quality of Mahal. It is no wonder why they are prized by collectors and loved as a meaningful and decorative statement piece by world class designers. They truly stand out, and they are the oldest of the Mahal rugs.
These West Central Persian rugs are exclusive on an international level and sizes found are typically 9x12 and larger. This rug has a distinct size and will be quite rewarding to the person who truly seeks it. The exceptional craftsmanship involved in these works of art inspires us and lends to why these particular village carpets always are stamped for true art value. Bringing this rug home is a sweet treasure; quite simply, it is a trophy rug to be cherished. Fun fact: a Sultanabad Mahal that Freud had in his personal collection was sold in 2001 for $92K. We are thrilled to have it in our collection and extend it at such great value.
This heirloom has been professionally cleaned and is ready for its next abode. Please note, this rug is worn, parallel to age and history. Please see pics up close for condition. Areas with threadbare will be reinforced from the underside with a patch before it ships.
We recommend a rug pad under this puppy...and you can order one through us if you'd like, to help keep this rug in place and we can custom cut it for you to size: https://www.shopblueparakeetrugs.com/collections/rug-pads/products/large-rug-pad
