A fantastic Sultanabad carpet, beautiful soft colours and floral motifs throughout the pale main field with a rather unusual soft green border. Green was an expensive dye to make and is rare to find in a border or main field thus enhancing this carpets appeal. A fantastic carpet woven over 130 years ago in very good condition.

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.

In very good condition with no repairs. The pile is low in places due to the nature of the flat weave, however being over 130 years old it is still in good usable condition. Placed in a drawing room or dining room it would enhance a room beautifully.
