Antique Persian Malayer Runner Rug 50499
Antique Persian Malayer Runner Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1920– This handsome runner rug is an antique Malayer featuring an interesting interpretation of the ancient Boteh symbol, which has been used in Persian textiles for millenia. While the field features geometric boteh motifs consistent with the angular style of Malayers, the scrolling around the border is of a more feminine, organic design. Rich maroons and cream dominate in this rug, though the gorgeous slate gray detailing adds contrast. Hints of salmon and saffron throughout create subtle dimension to the dominant color palette.
