This lavish and impressive all over design, oversize antique Persian Malayer rug is a true decorator’s carpet. This very large, or palace size antique Persian Malayer rug is filled with beautifully varied colors, large-scale decorations and a palatial composition.

Large All Over Design Oversize Antique Malayer Area Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa: Late 19th Century around the 1890’s – The spectacular blues and reds of this antique Persian rug come together to create an elegant piece that will give the room a sense of vibrancy and color. This exciting antique rug was produced in Persia around the late 19th century, approximately around the 1890’s. It has retained its color and vibrancy well for its age, demonstrating the care and love that it has received.
This beautiful all over rug design pattern is rendered in such a way that the design has a feeling of delicacy and refinement. The main border of this antique oversized Persian Malayer Rug is not larger than the guard borders surrounding it. Instead, the main border of this oversized rug comprises three separate bands of equal scale, but with contrasting fields. This makes it complement, rather than stand out against the design of the main field of the rich jewel tone color rug.
The scale of the motifs in the borders matches the smaller motifs within the abrashed color variant field of the rug. The floral elements are rendered in such a way that none of them seem to stand out as the main attraction. Instead, the artist created a visual effect where the eye tends to sweep from one end of the rug to the other. This rug could be used to bring a room of oversized portion back down to scale. The rug is directional as indicated by the placement of some of the motifs.
Although the Persian Malayer rug does have a formal horizontal and vertical symmetry, it is not rendered in such a way that this feature is highlighted. Instead, this element is used to add to the sense of balance that is inherent in the rest of the design. This beautiful rug adds a sense of delicacy and vibrant color to any space that it occupies.
