Antique Persian Mahal 4'6"×10'4"
C. 1905 The navy field is edged by nested, knobbed triangles in ecru, red, dark blue, goldenrod and khaki. These same tones accent the three column Herati field with open diamonds, rosettes, palmettes, short “fish” leaves and ecru arabesques. The field pattern cuts off with navy triangles at the ends rather than completing as do the sides. Red strip-style border with chains of formalized irises. Cotton foundation, medium weave. Good condition.
