Object Description

A beautiful rare ivory ground antique Sultanabad carpet, with a soft palette and open all over design.  In excellent condition for its age, this decorative elegant design is known as the Mina-Khani pattern.  With varying floral motifs connected with vines, using lovely blues, yellows, reds and balanced well with a soft red/orange border.   A beautiful rare pale antique carpet which is very easy on the eye, making it perfect for a drawing room or family room for example.

We can see the original fringes at both ends, the weaves stopped the carpet differently at one end when it was cut off the loom.  Amazing to see after 130 years and shows how durable these decorative antique Persian carpets are.  It has been used privately for many years in a country home, and we have only had to wash this piece to make it ready to be used again.

Please request a home visit for us to show you this Sultanabad carpet in-situ at a convenient time, we travel all over the UK, and have visited Scotland and Ireland many times over the last 30 years.
