Antique Malayer Persian rug
This antique Malayer rug dates to about 1850 and is one of our oldest priced Persian rug in our inventory...
Sometimes, truly remarkable gifts come in small packagages. This very old Malayer rug dates back to about 1850 and is a great example of what the old weaving techniques of the weavers in Hamadan province are so famous and respected for. The rug weaving in the Hamedan province dates back centuries and Malayer is the second largest city and one of the main rug producing centers in that province.
Based on the condition and size of this Malayer rug, we believe that this rug was placed as a decor rug in a home and must have had virtually no foot traffic on it as its condition is truly excellent. The design and colors date back to the mid 19th century and if you are familiar with Persian rugs, you will notice the influence that the Sarough rug center had on the weavers in Malayer. These type of antique Malayer Persian rugs are rarely ever found and when they are offered, their prices are so astronomical that they become simply too expensive for most. Also, this small size makes this Malayer a perfectly suited decor rug and a perfect addition to a fine collection of rare rugs.
