Measuring 4'2" x 6', this Persian Malayer carpet is hand-knotted in red, cream, and blue shades of wool. Circa 1900, this carpet is woven with functionality in mind and is in like-new condition. Created using traditional Persian weaving techniques. These methods provide a plush pile while still producing a durable foundation.  Starting from the field's center, we find three diamond-shaped medallions on top of the carpet's rich red background. Inside these medallions are traditional Malayer boteh motifs in shades of red, cream, and blue detailing.  The medallions pop off the carpet's rich red background, creating fabulous contrast for the medallions and the multi-level border. The border includes additional flower, vine, leaf, and boteh motifs that connect throughout the carpet. Altogether, this carpet is stunning with its vivid tones and classic design, this Malayer carpet would be perfect as a living room carpet, a bedroom carpet, or even as an entryway carpet.
