52451 Antique Persian Malayer Runner, Wide Hallway Runner with Rustic Gustavian Style 05'06 x 13'02. This hand-knotted wool antique Persian Malayer runner features an all-over Herati pattern spread across an abrashed navy blue field. The classic Herati pattern, also known as the Mahi or Fish pattern, is amongst the most widespread and well known of all Persian designs, consisting of a flower centered in a diamond accompanied by curving lanceolate leaves that resemble fish. In this antique Malayer runner, the small-scale Herati pattern is both lively and sophisticated, while larger scale floral motifs in the corner spandrels add a gentle contrast. Pairs of carnation meander and boteh and rosette meander guard borders flank the lovely floral vine main border. With its subdued color palette based around earthy gray tones and deep blues, this versatile antique Persian Malayer runner would ground any space with a sense of comfortable sophistication.
