Enchanting vintage full pile Persian Malayer runner with lovely colors including blue and green, brick red and white.
The rug features stylized leaves and flowers on a dark blue field with moderate color abrash (variegation in color due to changes in dye batches). Abrash creates a painterly effect quite distinct from the formal monochromatic urban workshop carpets of Iran.
Condition is excellent with minor wear on the wool pile. The side cords and fringes are in very good shape.
Natural wool on natural cotton. 1960s.
Exact size is 10 ft. by 5 ft. 2 in.
Last photo with Morgan silver dollar shows the backside of the carpet.
Malayer region rugs demonstrate excellent variety and quality, and are highly regarded by collectors. Malayer (also Malayir) is south of Hamadan and west of Arak. These rugs share much with Sarouk rugs but they are more diverse and imaginative.
Shipping is $43 within the continental U.S. Or free pickup in Tucson in March or April. (Moving by May 1st, 2021)
