Antique Malayer Rug, Persia, circa Turn of the Twentieth Century – Here is an exciting and beautiful antique Oriental rug – an antique Malayer carpet that was woven in Persia around the turn of the twentieth century. A compelling example, this antique Malayer rug effectively showcases some of the finer points of the style. This phenomenal antique Persian Malayer carpet is a distinguished work of art that redoubles the beauty of form, line and color in a revolutionary manner. The sophisticated large-format composition incorporates a maze of dramatic lines, eye-catching geometric figures and tiny embellishments that are surprisingly similar to the streamlined style of art deco and nouveau pieces. Pastel mineral colors give the distinctive botanical decorations and rectilinear Herati-leaf borders a soft low-chroma appearance that is countered by the inky blue field. Charming guard bands filled with delicately colored botehs give the larger composition an alluring cultural appearance that ties into the angular northwest Persian motifs and geometry. A wonderful example of an important style of antique Oriental rug weaving, this antique Malayer carpet is sure to enhance any interior space.
