19th century Mahal carpet

This attractive rug belongs to a group of carpets specifically commissioned in west Persia during the Late 19th/Early 20th century to complement European furnishing tastes. They are unique due to their grand scale drawings, quiet formality and use of soft understated colours and are often seen in grand stately homes in Europe and the UK. Antique Ziegler carpets work well in modern spaces as they have the aesthetic ability to unite and balance both classic and contemporary design elements.

This chic 19th century Mahal carpet has a subtle blue-grey colour background complementing the grand scale drawing of the field, framed by a wide terracotta border. There is natural colour variation (abrash) in the central field which adds great depth and richness to the drawing and its variety of colour combinations. Rare in this squarish format.

In good practical condition for everyday use with harmonious vegetable dyed colours which have aged nicely.

A decorative carpet with discrete elegance to complement a wide variety of settings.

We work with a range of clients including leading interior designers and architects, members of the design industry, hoteliers, private clients and collectors. Some of the projects for which we have provided rugs include grand listed buildings, hotels, embassies, modern city apartments, 17th century abbeys, country houses and residential homes.

We have just recently relocated from our showroom on the Fulham road to our studio/workshop in North London.
