Persia, 1940

(0.96 x 1.76 m)

A vintage Persian Malayer rug. The rust field displays a vertical section of a geometric version of the classic allover Harshang pattern with a central, symmetrized ragged palmette, ‘fish’ leaves and gooseneck arabesques. The dark slate/charcoal border shows a totally abstracted leaf and flower design. This west Persian scatter is a bit too informal for Malayer.
