Highly decorative Persian Mahal carpet dating to the late 19th century.

It has a very desirable all over design of generously spaced lozenges arranged in a reciprocal manner: the white-ground diamonds are curved inwards, the red-ground elements between the diamonds are curved outwards. Each of these design elements is filled with a pair of opposing floral shrubs along a central vertical line. 

The main border on a dark blue ground is decorated with a chain of large flower heads with small tendrils protruding into the border. It is flanked by multiple minor borders with reciprocal geometric and meandering floral designs.

The colours are warm and gentle, all derived from natural dye stuffs. 

The carpet is in excellent condition.
