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 Mahal carpets work well in modern spaces as they have the aesthetic ability to unite and balance both classic and contemporary design elements.
A beautiful antique Ziegler Mahal carpet with a simple monochrome overall drawing. The rare ivory field provides a great contrast to the array of colours including various greens, terracotta and a touch of grey - all natural vegetable-dyed which have aged nicely.
This early Ziegler Mahal carpet is in well-preserved condition for everyday use with a slight age-related patina. The various borders including the plain ivory one are still present on all sides.
A stylish example with a quiet formality with discreet elegance and subtle colours that will make a great addition to a wide variety of interior styles.
