Like several Mahal carpets , this mid 20th century
example has a beautifully drawn version of
the Herati pattern, both the ‘drawing’
and the palette almost certainly derived from
contemporary Tabriz weaving. Note the plain
outer ‘frame’ guard, a characteristic of
Mahal carpets seen also on most examples.

Persian Mahal extra-large gallery aspect carpet handwoven from wool in Iran. Items of this significant proportion are considered Palace Size with respect to dimensions of a standard room.
