NN Antique Malayer 7'5" x 19'6"
Antique Persian Malayer Gallery Runner Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1920– This handsome runner rug is an antique Malayer featuring an interesting interpretation of the ancient Boteh symbol, which has been used in Persian textiles for millenia. While the field features geometric boteh motifs consistent with the angular style of Malayers, the scrolling around the border is of a more feminine, organic design. Rich maroons and cream dominate in this rug, though the gorgeous blue detailing adds contrast. Hints of salmon, ivory and deep bluethroughout create subtle dimension to the dominant color palette.
