MALAYER CAMELHAIR, West Central Persian
7' 0" x 10' 1"
Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) This superb late 19th century Malayer offers an accomplished, deeply memorable use of color. Luminous flashes of soft sand in the understated medallion, broad corner pieces, and dovetailed triangles guide the eye into the heart of the space, where the sheer abundance of different patterns--some geometric, some organic--engenders rapt attention. The use of continually shifting turquoise and aquamarine is a singular and extremely effective accent that transforms the entire character of the carpet, establishing a completely new plane of movement and subtlety. In concert with deep ochre, russet and brick reds, the interplay between tones becomes just as rich and nuanced as the motifs themselves. Learn About This Rug Type
