Antique Malayer Persian Runner Rug 48464
Antique Persian Malayer Runner Rug, Country Of origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1900 — Contrasting borders of white and black establish detailed lines of movement throughout the rug. At each of these borders, between their alternating patterns, are ruby red hems that draw attention to the multitude of brightly colored flowers present against each black and white background. At the very center of the rug is a large black field that houses two distinct designs, the larger series closer to the left, each pattern running horizontally, while the smaller series is set on the right, with the patterns running vertically. The charming blend of asymmetrical shapes creates an exciting and active foreground in this Malayer rug.
