291. A proud Persian Mahal (?) Rug

Bold Persian Mahal Rug

291. Provenance: Mahal (?), Western Persia

Age: Circa 1960

Size: 276 x 145 cm

Condition: Good, with minor areas of lower pile.

Notes: A mightily confident floral rug in bold, even brash colours, and charming because of it. This displays the kind of colouring that might appeal to tribal nomads who are bereft of colour in their arid environments. The vibrant magenta and the pale orange are especially unusual.
