Moghul Palace Carpet Fragment 40 x 43" i have owned this piece since 1998. When this piece came out of Tibet, pictures were forwarded to the Hali staff. The initial belief was that it was an old e. Turkestan piece, but the palette was a bit different than what would be expected from that area. The Hali staff forwarded the pictures to Jon Thompson, who stated he has seen rugs of this type in use in the Jaipur palace and they date from the Moghul period. Rugs of this type were made for use in the palaces and are referred to by Dr Jon Thompson as 2nd tier weavings not the fine types. The coarse weave and relatively rough materials correspond with Thompson's view that these were weavings made for floor use in less important rooms of the palace. Specifically the bluish cast to the red dye is also a particularly Moghul color seen in finer examples of the period.
