ELEGANT AND DECORATIVE ANTIQUE MAHAL PERSIAN RUGS
Mahal means many things in the rug world. The antique Persian carpets from the British firm of Ziegler with large scale allover patterns in the most desirable soft color’s: rust, ivory, light blue, light green, are Mahal’s. So are the repeating pattern rugs of the 1920’s-30’s with red fields and moderate weaves. The rugs termed Sultanabad’s are Mahal’s. With this chameleon character, there is a Mahal for any space, any décor, and any price point. Mahal’s come from the Mahalat area of western Persia and are almost always in room sizes.(See also Ziegler).
