Note: unique antique Mahal piece with classic floral field design, rust/peach background in the center with grey blue borders. One side of the center background is darker than the other, which is not uncommon in handmade antique rugs. Different colors in the original naturally dyed wool used in the piece, or use conditions such as sun exposure could have contributed to it. The variation in colors only adds to its beauty and character.
