As a piece of art, this rug is striking in its dark palette, which creates a sense of depth and richness. The intricate floral pattern is expertly executed, with each petal and leaf clearly defined in shades of navy, burgundy, and olive green. The design is an endless repeat, meaning it can be seen as one continuous pattern without clear borders or medallions. The rug measures 488 by 366 centimeters and dates back to 1900. Despite its age, the rug has clearly been well-maintained and cared for, as the colors remain vibrant and the wool pile looks plush and inviting. Overall, this rug is a testament to the skill and artistry of the Mahal weaving tradition.
