Antique Persian Malayer Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1920’s — Beautifully woven during the roaring 20’s, this Malayer antique Persian rug implements contrasting shades to produce an impressive degree of design. In the foreground, sweet, neutral shades of warm cream and delicate taupe are accented with a pale sky blue. The artistically floral motifs roll effortlessly across the luxurious rug’s onyx background. These shades of color complement rather than clash. They create an eye-catching color palette that brightens the hues in an almost symphonic harmony. The viewer’s eye is lead past the ornate borders of this antique Malayer rug towards the central focal chain of medallions, each more detailed than the last, with floral vines growing from the hearts of each, gracefully moving across the piece. Those who know, can appreciate the beautiful colors in this antique rug, but they will also appreciate just how rare such colors and patterns are to find.
