Northwest Persian Antique Rug
4' 1" x 6' 0" (124cm x 183cm) Circa 1900
A highly distinctive Persian village area-size rug, this Mishin Malayer offers a dazzling palette of color and exquisitely fine weave. Jewel-shaped tulips dance across an intensely dyed, shimmering midnight indigo backdrop in a kinetic latticework of serrated leaves. The design matrix is interrupted at both ends of the field eliciting a conveyor-like sense of movement. Azure, lemon yellow, rose, burnt copper, and sage green are the building blocks of a successful combination of natural hues. The animated oak leaf and rosette pattern within an unusual mocha-toned border simply sparkles, its upper horizontal band demonstrates a playful visual compression. Together, the ingenious elements in this piece combine to create a poetic loveliness, and its outstanding condition allows these attributes to be seen with impressive clarity.
