Malayer town is in the general Hamadan rug weaving orbit,but the rugs are much finer and more carefully rendered than the Kurdish village production of the area.This Malayer has an ivory cartouche shaped field closely covered by a dense,detailed Herati pattern.Unusually there is no medallion,but the blue/black corners with their palmette and boteh design are quarters of what a medallion could look like.
The blue/black border displays in-and-out turtle palmettes in a semi-geometric style seen on Mahal and Ferahan rugs.As in Malayers generally,there is a single cotton weft between knot rows and the knots are symmetric.The pile is naturally short to better display the intricate design and the slight overall wear has only sharpened the pattern.This piece has been cleaned professionally and is free of any stains or odors.For further information please email us or call us at 212-268-5876.
