A beautiful and highly decorative Antique Sultanabad carpet, woven around 1890-1900 with an excellent soft wool pile all over.  Lovely pale blue background with soft pinks, purple tones, gentle greens and a rustic border colour.  A wonderful antique carpet to place in any room, without a large central medallion these Sultanabad carpets sit so well in a living room, study or snug area for example.

Condition is really very good indeed, a brilliant high soft wool pile all over.  We can even see the original end finishing when it was cut off the loom secure.  Minimal areas on the sides could be tidied up if required.  A sturdy decorative antique carpet that can be viewed at our showroom by appointment or please do request a home visit.

Sultanabad carpets are very important in the history of weaving as Sultanabad was formally known as Arak which was once the capital of Persia in the 1800’s.  Famous carpets such as Ziegler were woven in Sultanabad by the company Ziegler & Co which produced open large floral designs for western tastes and thrived in the late 19th century exporting these carpets to the US and Europe.  Sultanabad carpets are know as older better quality Mahals woven from the mid to late 19th century there pile is much flatter than the younger Mahal carpets and using softer colours rather than the typical reds and blues we associate with most Persian carpets.
