440. An enchanting Mahal Persian rug

Old Mahal Persian Rug

440. Provenance: Mahal, Arak region, Northwestern Persia

Size: 165 x 100 cm

Age: Circa 1930

Condition: Good.

Notes: Just the rug for the fireplace of an English country cottage, so why not try it in a Naivasha or Nanyuki one? The design and colours of this piece exude a cosy, welcoming warmth. Some see these type of rugs as too 'chinzy' to be cool, but rugs shouldn't be about fashion. Besides, what's not in vogue now, will be in some years from now. Circular and inevitable! This is a village rug, evenly-woven in good wool and using good natural dyes. Dare to be different.
