Antique Persian Malayer Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: 1900 – This beautiful antique rug — a wonderful antique Malayer Persian rug made in Persia some time around the turn of the twentieth century — is a lovely example of the tradition in which it was made. Finely detailed stepped medallions repeat in staggered array down the length of this lovely antique Malayer long rug. The density of the internal flower decor of the medallions contrasts beautifully with the open clarity of the tan field. The turtle vine scroll border echoes the richness of the medallions while varying the design, but affirming once again the soothing effect of the tan ground in the field. A piece that is evocatively beautiful and traditional in all of the most desirable ways, this charming antique Malayer Persian rug is something genuinely special.
