Large Antique Indian Agra Rug, Country of Origin: India, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – This lush millefleur carpet features an airy allover pattern with uniquely Indian design traits. Well-defined irises, shrubs and trees with branching limbs dot the creamy white field in a tightly grouped arrangement that allows just enough of the neutral background to show through. Cerulean blue borders decorated with cypress trees, a traditional symbol of longevity, frame the colorful field and offset the brilliant magenta borders that feature reciprocating vine-scrolls. Contrasting outlines highlight the detailed leaves and stems of the repeating floral motifs while light blue foliage paired with bright accents in mustard yellow, celadon and magenta add a touch of modernity to this formal millefleur carpet.
