Listing Information
An unusual 'Sunburst' design on this vibrant and interesting antique Mahal carpet woven on an ivory background colour.  This design we often see on Caucasian rugs such as Zejwa or Chelaberd rugs, it is rare to see it on a large scale on a Persian antique carpet.  It works extremely well as a large geometric design and the variation of beautiful colours from oranges, reds, greens and blues to yellows and pale greys.  The border of deep blue indigo balances the composition really well and adds warmth to the carpet.  

We love to help customers and interior designers source the ideal carpet for a room, if this beautiful antique Mahal carpet is of interest to you please request a home visit to arrange a time to view it in-situ.  We travel all over London and the UK & Europe showing our carpets in customers homes.

Mahal carpets were produced in Sultanabad, Persia which is now Arak in the center of Iran. Mahal and Sultanabad rugs were made in the same area as the earliest Fereghans and Sarouks, but they are very different in form and structure. Floral motifs and overall designs of vine scrolls and palmettes remain consistent with the influences of western color palettes and are all characteristics of Ziegler carpets.
In good condition in general with a finer weave than most Mahal carpets, some areas of lower pile are apparent in places.  This does add in many ways to the carpets charm and with high quality underlay we supply it would be very durable for many many years.  Especially as this carpet has already been used on a floor for over 100 years we know antique Persian carpets have stood the test of time.
