3'4" x 14'11" Persian Malayer Camel Color, c-1920's in perfect condition.
A pleasant Botheh design with an ivory color border. 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
