Persian Hamadan Malayer Extra-Large Gallery Carpet – Oversize
This Persian Malayer carpet is published in;
THE PERSIAN CARPET, ‘The Fabric of Life’, Essie Sakhai, Woodbridge, 2008.
pl. 280, pp. 340-341.
The carpets of the Malayer district, centred on the eponymous town,
are generally considered to fall into two groups, those with an affinity
with the village weavings of Hamadan and those that are closer to
the weavings of Saruk and Arak. Unlike the latter types, which tend
to be woven with the asymmetric or Persian knot, all Malayer rugs
and carpets are symmetrically knotted, usually on cotton foundations.
This large and impressive late-19th century carpet has one of the most
characteristic of Malayer designs based on a series of ever larger
hexagonal medallions, with the three larger ones as well as the corners
covered with a dense overall version of the Herati pattern.
The palette of this splendid example is also typical, with shades
of brownish red, orange and brown enlivened by various shades of blue.
The format of this carpet is almost that of a kelleh–the name given
to the large carpet that is placed at right-angles above the
other three in a traditional Persian four-carpet arrangement.
The kelleh is often of very large size and the length is usually
at least double that of the width.
Persian Hamadan Malayer extra-large gallery aspect carpet handwoven from wool in Iran. Considered oversize, due to larger proportions than standard room size.
