Malayer (antique) 9958
Country of origin: Kurdistan
Very old and very beautiful Malayer rug. Malayer is a large village located between the major weaving areas of Hamadan and Sarouk in Northwest Kurdistan In Malayer and the small villages surrounding it, production was almost exclusively small antique rugs and runners made by individual weavers in the 19th and early 20th centuries. An extremely limited number of larger Persian carpets up to 10ft by 13ft were woven on the family level in some of the larger villages. Oversize antique carpets are seen very rarely and were woven on commission. Slightly worn, circa 1890.
The colours of the rug look different depending on the angle from which you look at it.
