MUTED BEAUTY Antique Persian Mahal | Terracotta, Green, Dirty Linen-Taupe, Walnut, Blue | 10 x 13


* All of our antique & vintage rugs are professionally cleaned prior to being listed.*

Name: MUTED BEAUTY Antique Persian Mahal | Terracotta, Green, Dirty Linen-Taupe, Walnut, Blues

Size: 10 x 13

Age: Antique, C. 1920's

Pile: Low/Distressed Pile with age related wear and patina.  Super Character-rich piece with one corner that I am having fully restored all by hand.  I'm re-weaving it just enough to fill in the spots but while still keeping it's ancient old aesthetic. (see pic with my hand to know where we are filled it in and having it rewoven).  

About: MAGNIFICENT All-Over Antique Persian Mahal with sensational root motifs throughout.  Groundedness is an understatement as the roots and complexity sprawl throughout the entirety of the piece - incredible muted color-palette with age-old dyes that have softened to give us a soothing feel while still honoring the 100% natural vegetable dyes of the old weavings back in the day.  Nice floppy handle giving it a luxurious feel and century old wear to add distinct sophisticated for many moons. 

This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one available.

Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.

Any questions about this rug? Don't hesitate to reach out!

We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.

A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
