Striking vintage Persian Malayer runner with muted grayish field colors and Herati pattern woven in greens, white, blue and red.
Condition is excellent for a vintage rug with only minor wear on the wool pile. The side cords and fringes are in fine shape. Cotton fringes are a little yellowed from natural aging.
Natural wool on natural cotton. 1960s.
Exact size is 10 ft. 7 in. by 4 ft. 10 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.
Persian rugs from Hosseinabad often use a similar design.
