circa 1900 antique Zilli Sultan with Silk Persian rug measures 4’6” X 6’8”
(140 x 207 cm). It is very finely woven with repeated vases of flowers
completely covering the field. The flowers have white silk highlights that
give this rug a very interesting beautiful dimensional aspect which is quite
unusual. The ground color of the rug is very very pale peach to old ivory.
It is completely covered in floral motif. Here’s are very interesting thing
about the rug that most people won’t see… but if you look carefully at the
vases they become masks with eyes! Very weird illusion. The inner and outer
reciprocal borders have groups of three white flowers separated by red
flowers. At the bottom end of the inside border the red flowers actually
touch in the middle. At the top end of the rug they do not. The major border
consists of red and blue bouquets of flowers in urns all on an ivory ground.
The edges have been replaced and poorly overcast with a minor 1 ˝ inch long
ding that can be fixed. The rug has good pile over 95% leaving with 5%
evenly low in places. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the
shipping with insurance of $40.00
