Name: RARE Collectable Antique DRAGON Mishin Malayer Rug | Rare & Decorative Extremely Fine Antique Rug 

Size: 4.8 x 6.2 

Age: Antique

Pile: Low

About: One-of-One Antique Mishan Malayer with the most beautiful colors you've ever seen in your life. Perfectly age-worn with no pile yet with no damage or holes to the field or anything. Really just an incredible piece with french blues, saffron yellows, earthy camel, grassy greens, reds and oranges, and a whole melody of colors that pop against a darker inky blue-black field. The corner spandrels you will see are influenced by ANCIENT dragon motifs that are so subtle and difficult to see but if you look close and spot them - you won't see them again. They are so subtle given the rest of the design is sprawling with vines and an artistic garden blooming from the center medallion. Sharp tips of the tulips and misshaped rounded Sarouk flowers and daisy petals that are all asymmetrical give this rug its true identity and individual oneness. The size alone speaks to its age, and when you look at the back of this rug to see the weave - you will marvel. You will not believe how small, how insignificant each knot seems lost in a jungle of other knots - but on the contrary that is exactly what gives even the most sophisticated of rug collectors goosebumps! It is amazing that these photos can connect rug lovers and seekers of the niche and novel, but of course, these pictures don't do this rug justice one bit. At any rate, we still hope you can see the mystique and masterclass of workmanship this piece contains, with the rare and HIGHLY sought-after dragon motifs and vivid garden designs that sprawl out in front of us to enjoy each time we glance at it. This is a tribal masterpiece without question. My grandfather has secured the fringe ends for you and we are including a free high-quality custom cut pad for this piece - so all you have to do is find a place to lay it or hang it and let it breathe life into your space.

This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one available.

Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects. Any questions about this rug? Don't hesitate to reach out!

We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.

A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
