Fine Mahal ca 1890 6'7" x 10'1"/ 203 x 310cm
The lovely soft colours in this antique rug consist of a pale camel colour for the background, covered in a typical Herati motif of repeating flowers and vines. The broad ivory border is bold and is the main feature of this otherwise unobtrusive rug. An unusual feature of the border is the border design actually flows perfectly around all four corners- a notoriously difficult feat and involves a great deal of fore-planning and skill from the weaver(s). In excellent condition, high pile will give years of good service.
Occasionally I also do a home trial, numerous factors can vastly change how a piece looks and feels in a room. Get in touch for more information
