Antique Malayer Rug
Antique Malayer Rug Description:
Descriptive words and phrases like opulence and artisanal craftsmanship must always come to mind when describing exquisite or rare oriental carpets and rugs. This Persian Malayer rug features color striations throughout the fabric. This is not an unusual tapestry characteristic to see in antique Persian rugs. The open field is colored black and is creatively overlain with golden and beige colored cartouche-like shapes and designs and abstract human forms. The thin guard border features alternating and interlocking wave patterns of grey and gold. The main border features a beige background and features a repeating pattern of abstract line shapes. The outer border framing the main border has a brown background and encases repeating palmette patterns.
