Handsome antique Mahal carpet dating from the early 20th century, in brilliant full pile and condition. A soft wool pile all over and woven with natural dyes, we can see a variety of muted greens and pale blues, delicate pinks and hints of yellow. All on a soft red main background colour, all professionally cleaned and in original order it is ready to use on the floor.  Not having a central medallion makes this an easy antique carpet to place in a variety of rooms.  Woven around circa 1920 the colours have faded beautifully, these decorative carpets from northern Persia are full of charm and suit country houses to London apartments.

Mahal carpets were produced in Sultanabad, Persia which is now Arak in the centre 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 vinescrolls and palmettes remain consistent with the influences of western colour palettes and are all characteristics of Ziegler carpets.
