5'9" x 11'5" Antique Persian Malayer Gallery Carpet, c-1910's in excellent condition.
A very busy Herati center and a pleasant border design with running water and trees. The tribal weavers in Malayer were often Turkish, and they employed the Turkish knot, Gourde, to weave these creations. The Gourde is a symmetrical knot, as opposed to the asymmetrical knot of many traditionally Persian creations. Additionally, antique Malayer rugs regularly enjoy a low cut pile. Weavers trimmed the pile in order to enhance the appearance of the design
