Antique Persian Malayer Runner
Antique Persian Malayer Runner Description:
This antique Persian Malayer runner rug presents the collector with a view of beige and camel floral abstractions on a field of brown, with a main border pulling the look together. Malayer carpets come from the city of Malayer in Iran. Antique Malayer rugs were, for the most part, created by individual weavers during the 1800s and early 1900s and display uniqueness in their broad range of designs and choice of colors. They are one-of-a-kind artistic creations, and their value 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 stunning antique runner carpet, typically consists of a low cut pile, with weavers trimming the pile in order to enhance the appearance of the design.
