This is one of the antique Malayer rugs from Western Persia woven circa 1900. The design of this rug is highly unique for malayer rugs and overall extremely attractive and highly desired by collectors and designers alike. The field is made up of what is known as the Herati pattern, but in this specific example the Weaver has drawn this motif on an extra-large scale which has created a dramatic visual impact and makes it extremely unique. The Herati design of this carpet has been drawn and executed to perfection. The motifs are all highly enlarged and spaciously drawn making this rug extremely attractive – the green colour of the field is rare and is seldomly used in Persian rugs. The viewer’s eyes are drawn to the sickle leaf motifs that use an ivory, pink, and brown colour and away from the more densely packed pink coloured motifs. The main border of this rug is much more highly geometric and is made using crab motifs interconnected with a densely packed vine design set on an ivory background. This rug is extremely decorative has a unique colour palette and a rare square size.
This rug is finely handknotted on a cotton foundation with 100 % wool pile and is available in:
- 228 x 205 cm
Condition: Overall Good Condition with areas of low pile and wear consistent with age.
