Bearing a resplendent version of the much-loved Mustafavi (stylized Garden of Paradise) design, this dynamic, century-old oversize carpet demonstrates a spontaneous vitality that is very rarely seen. Flame-like fronds join an intensely expressive panoply of minutely rendered garlands and scrolling vinery, supported by a resonant palette of deeply saturated indigo, coral red, leaf green and ivory. Elegant drawing and unusually glossy wool make this tour-de-force Mahal rug even more compelling. Its full-pile condition makes it perfect for even the most heavily trafficked of rooms.
