A highly restrained palette and tremendous subtlety of design are among the strong suits of this exquisite oversize Persian Malayer rug, which amply demonstrates the heightened level of artistry for which the 19th century examples are so ardently prized. Significant for its great age of nearly 150 years old, this exquisitely woven oriental carpet presents a majestically balanced design ennobled by the impressive assemblage of rare green hues, including sage, celadon, and pistachio. A unique floral pattern fills its spacious cornerpieces, reasserting the distinctively European flair of this venerable antique piece. Its pain-stakingly crafted calligraphy border offers beautiful poetic verses.
