Malayer Camelhair rug, circa 1900

We are extremely proud to offer this stunning  Malayer camelhair rug, one of the most important pieces within our New Arrivals collection. This extraordinarily well preserved piece possesses an overall impression of amplitude and expressiveness that overwhelms a viewer standing in front of it—an exciting interplay between the very finely woven allover lattice in the background and the totally freeform hexagonal medallions that float effortlessly above. These medallions levitate with a subtle but captivating sense of movement that a photo simply cannot fully convey. The rich indigo and terra cotta tones in the medallions beautifully compliment the warmth and subtle variances of the camelhair ground, and echo the tones in the beautifully detailed borders. Most probably made on commission, its very unusual, almost square size is perfect as centerpiece for a large seating area.
