This is an antique Malayer rug woven in West Persia woven during the first quarter of the 20th century circa 1900-1910. The field has an all-over Paisley design interconnected by vines and is surrounded by blossoming floral motifs set on a dark blue background colour. The Paisley motif is highly symbolic in Persian culture and represents life and eternity. The border is created by using large-scaled tulip and floral motifs interconnected by a split arabesque design set on a light blue background creating colour contrast against the darker coloured field. This piece has been preserved in overall great condition and has a unique design making it highly decorative and extremely desirable by rug connoisseurs.
