Mahal

Early 20th Century
Persia
DESCRIPTION:

Against a rose madder ground, an allover design of palmettes and foliage is drawn to form the field of this elegant central Persian Mahal carpet. This repeat arrangement of several varieties of flowering plants, geometric blossoms, and curvilinear palm fronds ultimately traces to postclassical Persian design of the 18th century. It is relayed here in this late 19th century example with remarkable clarity and integrity. A restrained use of white, both in the field and border, conveys a sense of depth and balance.
