Antique Mahal carpet

Circa 1900
366 × 276 cm 12’ x 9’


An antique Mahal carpet with rich warm colours and a beautiful all over floral design. The condition is slightly worn in some areas,  but this adds to the look of the carpet and creates a wonderful looking,  decorative carpet.  Woven around the early part of the 20th Century, now over 100 years old.  This type of carpet was originally woven as a furnishing carpet for the houses of Europe.

. . .

 The Persians were very clever entrepreneurs and followed fashion and design closely,  so this type of caret would have never been intended for use in their own homes,  but was commissioned by a trader or dealer who knew the market in Europe well.

Antique Mahal carpets are usually woven with an all-over pattern,  consisting of floral designs and soft tones.  Their neighbours in the north of Persia, Heriz were always more geometric in their style – and more often were woven with central motifs.  Look at both types if you are thinking of furnishing a room,  as one of these two styles (Mahal or Heriz) are the most popular and fashionable types.

All of our carpets and rugs we supply come with the best rug underlay on the market, a fantastic product we have supplied for over 10 years which keeps a carpet secure,  and adds stability to it. This helps prevent any further wear and adds to its durability.

Having travelled and visited customers since 1990 showing our carpets & rugs in-situ in London, Surrey, Hampshire & the UK by appointment.  Request a home visit if you would like to choose a day and time for us to visit you with this antique Mahal to see in situ.
