Antique Indian Agra Rug, Origin: India, Circa: Early 20th Century – This striking antique Agra rug is inspired by the Serapi and Bakshaish carpets of Northwest Persia. A bold medallion with massive finials is surrounded by highly abstract floral and geometric motifs in the field. A hexagonal inner medallion is enclosed by a larger lobed one, while large hooked corner-pieces fill the remaining areas. A highly stylized palmette vine-scroll border frames the field. But the bold, monumental geometry of this design is wonderfully balanced or softened by the pale, tone-on-tone coloration of the carpet. For all its grand sweep and angular abstraction, the ultimate effect is gentle, cool, and calm, a remarkably decorative piece.
