Vintage full pile Persian village rug with saturated deep crimson colors — and a dash of purple to boot. Possible Malayer but definitely woven in a village in central Iran.
Displays a complex central medallion on a dark red field, a pair of stylized vases with flowers, stars, ivory corners, and a floral border.
If you appreciate saturated deep pomegranate reds then this is your carpet.
Condition is excellent with very little signs of wear on the wool pile. The side cords have some minor wear and the short cotton fringes are in very good shape.
Natural wool on natural cotton. 1960s.
Exact size is 8 ft. 3 in. by 3 ft. 8 in. Last photo with Morgan silver dollar shows the backside of the carpet.
Shipping price is $34 within the continental U.S.
Malayer region rugs demonstrate good variety and quality, and are highly regarded by collectors. Malayer (also Malayir) is south of Hamadan and west of the Arak Sarouk rug crafting area in Iran.
