PERSIA, 1ST HALF S.XX
Typical design of flowery branches in ocher tones, on a dark blue background, is the main decorative motif of this small rug. The quality of its knotting, as well as the fineness of its wefts and warps, allow all the motifs to be clearly appreciated. The border is narrow and appropriate for the size of the rug and has three grooves with flowers, in the same colors. Melayir rugs constitute an important and distinctive group of Persian rugs.
