A vintage Persian Malayer runner. A squared-off meander with small stylized palmettes, frames the well-abrashed sienna brown ground with a Herati design emphasizing large, hooked ‘fish’ leaves and a central column employing octofoil rosettes. This west Persian village long rug employs one of the nearly infinite Malayer variations on the Herati pattern.
