Beautiful And Decorative Long And Narrow Configuration Antique Persian Paisley Design Malayer Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1920 – This antique Persian Malayer rug features an allover paisley pattern that takes up the entirety of the central field. The lines of the shawl like pattern travel across the entire field of this antique Persian rug in a diagonal pattern. This beautifully rendered pattern is interspersed with gentle zig zag direction changes that create visual interest and moments of uniqueness among the repeating pattern.
The diagonal lines within the pattern create an interesting and unique visual element that draws the eye along the length of the antique rug. This antique Oriental rug features a strong sense of movement. This is mostly achieved by the overall long and narrow shape of the antique Persian paisley design Malayer rug itself, coupled with the elongated configuration of the beautiful free flowing vine scroll design.
This wide hallway rug features a wide tribal border. This more geometric pattern border is set against a light cream background color which juxtaposes beautifully in both color as well as pattern with the central field of the antique Persian paisley design Malayer rug. The difference in color and pattern create a sense of framing between the border and the central field that helps to highlight the patterns present in both sections.
The patterns within both the border and the central field are floral inspired. This floral aspect is especially noticeable in the delicate flowers that are present in the border. The darker colored outlines on these elements is based off the blue color in the main field which create a wonderful sense of overall completeness as well as great feeling of balance.
All these elements and designs combined make this antique decorative rug a stunning and interesting piece. It is the kind of antique carpet that is easy to decorate a room around or just incorporate it into already existing interior decors.
