West Central Persian Antique Carpet
10' 3" x 13' 4" (312cm x 406cm) Circa 1910
Springing from a rich and varied artistic tradition, this supremely decorative over-century-old Mahal carpet would bring a vibrant celebration to any room. This large room-size representative excels in an artfully complex symmetrical, expansive, and wonderfully spacious allover pattern, adorned with a great diversity of blossoms and palmettes, each drawn with the slight, personal variations that reveal the dexterity and fluidity of its weavers. Complementing the splendid crimson ground color, the botanical motifs are illumined in a joyous array of evocative, time-matured hues, including celadon greens, radiant corals, and glowing mid-range blues. This vestige of a lost village weaving tradition has a glowing patina of age and an endearing "lived-in" ambiance.
