Beautiful tribal weeping willow design blue background fine Persian Antique Malayer Rug, Country of origin / Rug Type: Antique Persian Rugs, Circa date: 1920’s – A garden design of stylized cypress, weeping willow, and beautiful flowering trees stand out in vivid color against a midnight background in this exquisite antique Persian Malayer rug. The Juxtaposition of color is used in a way to bring balance throughout the design of the antique Persian rug by incorporating brilliant reds on the borders and throughout the design of the field, creating an extraordinary eye catching contrast.
The antique rug has symmetry throughout the field design, but the focal point of the jewel tone rug blends into the rest of the field, rather than standing out as a separate element. The size of the motifs and pattern repeats give the room size rug a sense of scale and make it appear to take up a larger space within the area. The use of bright jewel tone colors also helps to create a sense of larger scale in the design. This gives the tree design rug the ability to make a smaller space appear to be larger, but it would not be lost in a larger room either.
At first, the focus of the Persian garden carpet is on the larger design, but as you begin to examine it more closely, little details began to speak stand out that give it a sense of charm and personality. For instance, you can see little geometric people and animals placed throughout the garden. They are small in comparison to the trees, which was used to highlight the grand scale of the trees. The use of outlines on the small details throughout the rug help them to stand out against the darker background.
This is a delightful weeping willow tree design antique Persian Malayer rug that can be used to bring vivid color and a sense of scale to any room and home decor. The angular nature of the motifs allows this rug to retain the essence of its tribal traditions. Its level of detail adds a sense of charm and demonstrates the skill of the weaver.
