Antique Sultanabad, Persia, late nineteenth century. Richly-colored palmettes, flowers, and swirling spiral vines spray across the warm sandy gold field of this lush, exuberant antique Sultanabad. The variegation of the ground color creates an illusion of deep space and openness, despite the complex density of the design. In the border the varying tones of blue recall the early evening sky.
