Antique NW Persian, Malayer, 52″x80″, D0167
Antique Northwest Persian Malayer ( Malayir) Dim: 52" x 80" Fabric: Hand-spun, hand-dyed, hand-knotted,wool. Condition: A beautiful antique Malayer (Malayir) rug in great condition with overall good low pile . NO worn spots. All sides will be secured to make the rug floor ready. These rugs were woven in northwest Iran, adjacent to the Arak/Sarouk area. They were known for their fine weaves and design similarities to older Sarouks, but they always were woven with the Turkish (symmetric) knot and not the Persian, asymmetric knot. This piece has beautiful blues and coral reds and displays the islimis flower, vine-like design in the spandrel corners of the rug. The borders are the typical Northwest Persian borders of the calyx and leaf design, a design which also appears in some Caucasus rugs.
