(“FALL 2018 NEW ARRIVAL EVENT”)
This is among oldest and finest examples of Mazlagan rugs (a Persian village in the Malayer district) we have seen, predating the early to mid-20th century jewel-toned rugs that are more commonly found. A much more finessed work than these later pieces, this desert tone geometric carpet is striking. Its distinctively elongated medallion's terra-cotta ground introduces naive blossoms in a single chain that appear in the inner medallion forming a latticework and in the corner spandrels. Perching bird pairs and a sprinkling of weaver's combs are meant for the surprise of the viewer. With its syncopated, scrolling leaf and calyx borders, this rug's distinctive, aged tonalities are perfect for use as an accent in a contemporary or sun-drenched environment.
