MALAYER CAMELHAIR, Northwest Persian
11' 6" x 20' 7"
(Connoisseur-Caliber) Very rarely do antique Oriental rugs of such a folkloric nature appear in such grand dimensions. This highly singular 125-140 year-old Malayer antique carpet is a masterwork created on an enormous canvas. It offers a virtuoso assemblage of balanced geometry and an entirely original pattern language. In an idiosyncratic expression virtually never seen in weavings other than small antique tribal rugs, each diverse element is united into a compelling whole. Luminous camelhair is the ideal base to ground and unify this panoply of motifs. Learn About This Rug Type
