West Central Persian Antique Carpet
9' 2" x 10' 9" (279cm x 328cm) Circa 1900
This antique Mahal rug is both highly decorative and in a more seldom encountered, squares shape. Set upon a warm terra cotta field, the mesmerizing all-over Herati pattern of this compelling antique Persian Mahal draws the eye into a sea of diminutive motifs. In a striking departure from the more finely detailed field and cornerpieces, the grand main border, based in a deep midnight indigo, creates a sense of spaciousness and depth. The highly stylized, overscale meandering vines and flowerhead motif highlights the wonderfully varied palette of luminous sky blue, apricot and olive green used throughout this unique, mesmerizing composition.
