This is a gorgeous antique Persian Malayer with an all over floral-geometric design. It is a village rug with a color ground we rarely find and what's more...Malayer rarely come in room size. Most of these highly decorative old rugs were only woven in sizes such as a small 4x7; many do seek Malayers in large sizes because of their aesthetic that is so loved.
This fine oriental (handwoven) rug offers a great deal of history, prestige and style. The Malayer is a vegetal dyed wool rug (from plant, fruit, and vegetables) that was hand knotted and has 100 years of life. It is in excellent condition for its age and still has centuries of life to give. This is why old Persians are such great heirlooms...they are simply the greatest work of art and have the highest quality of wool and dyes.
Like all of the most artistic village rugs, older antique Malayer carpets are excellent investments which are just now beginning to approach the full recognition they deserve. Malayer is a large village located between the major weaving areas of Hamadan and Sarouk in Northwest Persia. Malayer and the surrounding villages produced some of the most ornate village weavings. At the finer levels, each Malayer Oriental carpet is distinct, the weavers having drawn on a large pool of designs, investing much originality in their creation.
