Antique Persian Malayer Runner BB5235 3'5" × 16'2" $10,000
Antique Malayer carpets come from the city of Malayer in Iran and were, for the most part, created by individual weavers during the 19th and early 20th centuries. These rugs and carpets display uniqueness in their broad range of designs and color palette, making them stunning artistic creations. The value of the rugs reflects their artistry in that the diversity of design and color is somewhat atypical for other styles of Persian rugs. The weaving style of Malayer rugs, such as this exquisite antique runner carpet, typically consist of a low cut pile, with weavers trimming the pile in order to enhance the appearance of the design. This particular rug features floral and geometric abstractions on a field of camel and beige, with an faded patina typically found in antique carpets.
