Beautiful Antique Agra Rug, Origin: India, Circa: Turn of the Twentieth Century, 1900 – Here is a beautiful and meticulously composed antique rug – an antique Agra rug that was hand woven in India in the years leading up to the turn of the twentieth century. Beautifully woven and impressive thought, this antique Agra carpet from India is an appealing and compelling example of the style. The monumental, geometric medallion design of this magnificent antique Indian Agra is inspired by the Persian Serapi rugs and Persian Heriz carpets of northwest Persia.

The star-like medallion with its quatrefoil core commands the field, counterbalanced by cornerpieces of similar design, and with sprays of stylized vines and palmettes in the intervening field. A finely-proportioned ‘turtle’ or vine scroll border frames the field and echoes the coloration of the medallion. But while the design pays homage to Persian tradition, the delicate palette of tans, mauves, and ivory is classic Agra, and it renders the whole effect of the carpet more subtle and decorative despite the bold drawing and scale. An impressive example, this antique Indian Agra rug is a delightful composition.
