MALAYER SAROUK, Northwest Persian
4' 2" x 6' 8"
127cm x 203cm
This extraordinary Malayer Sarouk antique carpet plays masterfully with empty spaces and eye-dazzling detail. In this antique rug, the mostly unadorned reserve is graced with a hexagonal herati-filled medallion with pendants and four stylized blossoms. The masterful use of abrash, or tonal variations, in the field brings an enchanting sense of depth and warmth. Irregularities and asymmetries abound for the seasoned eye to savor. Finally, a stirring contrast is achieved by the use of brilliant ivories against saturated midnight blues and inviting rich carnelian reds. Preserved in exceptional condition.
