Long and Narrow Antique Persian Malayer Runner Rug 48753
Breathtaking Long and Narrow Antique Persian Malayer Runner Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: First Quarter of the 20th Century – This impressively long runner rug, an antique Persian rug that exhibits a delightfully plush appearance, with brown and white decorations over a silver and gold backdrop. The central area is backed with silvery blue, a delicate hue that seems frozen in a perpetual glimmer. A pattern of stylized cross-like shapes and flowers spreads down the antique rug’s long body, staggered in rows. Each large figure trails horizontal and vertical lines like roots or vines that sprout the smaller blossoms, which feature paired leaves and red petals. A narrow tan bar, outlined in black like the shapes within, confines the central field, leading outwards to a set of more borders. Central among these, the widest band of orange is decorated with a thin vine, which winds and curls regularly around the piece. Alternating styles of flowers cling to the twining stem, their features highlighted with a rich, dark brown in this breathtaking antique Persian malayer rug.
