Sultanabad carpets from the 19th century and turn of the 20th century have become perhaps the most desirable among Persian town weavings, as they appeal strongly to both connoisseurs and interior designers. These two important groups of buyers have attracted to them as outstanding examples of casual, surprisingly contemporary designs and for their sophisticated, yet often whimsical, highly decorative aesthetic. As a result, the best antique Sultanabad rugs have become very difficult to find in the international market.

Often the finest pieces in the Sultanabad antique carpet style render spacious, very unique variations upon classical Persian allover patterns, such as the Herati (repeated diamond and curling leaf), the Mina Khani (repeated circular flowerhead) and Harshang (highly stylized dragon and blossom), often in subtle, glowing pastels and earth tones. Finally, a small number of Oriental Sultanabad rugs can be found that employ wonderfully detailed renditions of the beloved Mustafavi (stylized “Garden of Paradise”) motif. Most Sultanabad carpets feature these flowing, allover motifs, while a small number present the central medallion format, seen often in other Persian carpet styles. Whether the field is ivory, rust, rose, blue or the occasionally found gold or yellow, Sultanabad rugs’ visual impact is sophisticated, yet contemporary.
