In remarkably great condition for its age is this skillfully woven Persian Mission Malayer (from village of Mishin) on a dark midnight blue ground with rust vibes. Mission/Mishin Malayers are the very best of the Malayer village rugs and were always produced small.
It features beautiful and prominent sprouting paisleys big and small, also known as boteh, and you'll also see chickens woven throughout the field. In the main border, you'll see the eight pointed star repeating, also known to the weaver as the star of wisdom. This rug is a great example of articulate village weaving that Malayers stand for.
It's a fine Persian from the late 19th Century. The natural dyes are clean and quite evident with high quality wool. Low pile and in excellent condition for its age. Handwoven with vegetable dyed wool. We have pictures showing the vibrance both outdoor (with indirect sunlight) and indoor shots for your viewing.
