Antique Persian Malayer Rug BB2791 12'3" × 21'10" $98,000
An early 20th century antique Persian Malayer rug, the midnight blue field with a lush flowering vinery overall around staggered luxurious garland-formed pendants containing quatrefoil flowerheads within an ivory flowerhead border.
Antique Malayer rugs are unique in the diversity of design and color that is somewhat atypical for other styles of Persian rugs. Some of the many designs include the sprouting seed, which represents rebirth birds and diamonds surrounded by flowers and vines. Rather than two or three colors within the design of a rug, antique Persian rugs generally contain a deep blue background with the design created by multiple colors including sage green, red, light blue, pinkish brown, gold, tan, and brownish red. This diverse palate of colors is not typical for other types of Persian rugs, and this diversity sets antique rugs apart from other Persian tapestry styles.
