Late 19th Century
(High-Decorative) This glorious Malayer Sarouk antique rug with its resplendent colors is a remarkable example in the echelon of antique village Persian carpets from this region. Maintained in excellent, heavy pile condition, it evidences great skill in both natural dyeing and in its articulation of the classical medallion and corner piece design. It presents a seamless marriage between the fluidity and crisp detail work usually found in Persian floral city rugs and the vigor and delightful asymmetry of tribal rugs. Learn About This Rug Type
