Beautiful Antique Light Blue Persian Malayer Runner Oriental Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – True to its traditional antique Persian Malayer rug roots, this vivacious antique Persian runner rug displays an exquisitely repeating pattern that entices the senses and leads the eyes downward along its beautiful depths. Three primary borders surround the antique rug itself, and the simple colors chosen for the rug help define the form in the piece in a much more characteristic way. Sandy beige, gentle bronze and stormy black tones all complement each other, creating contrasting and highlighting between the various ground elements throughout. At the center of the rug, the viewer is treated to the most lively display of activity. Here, several diamond shapes form larger diamond connections as their golden forms seemingly gleam against the inky black backgrounds within.
