This gorgeous antique Agra rug from India is resplendent with its silk threading and its stunning patina, which come together to create an exceptional piece.
Rare Antique Silk Indian Agra Rug, Origin: India, Circa: Late 19th Century – Here is an absolutely remarkable antique Oriental rug – an antique Agra, woven with silk by the esteemed rug-makers of Northern India. This extraordinary piece, with its breathtaking patina, is an exemplary composition, typifying the unique beauty taken on only by authentic, genuinely aged antique rugs. The composition of this striking Agra is appealingly straightforward, albeit with some charming surprises. Primarily, this rug is presented as a classical central-medallion composition, riddled with fine details that are arranged around the medallion in a symmetrical, radiating manner. These details evoke the sort of abstract detail work that typifies older and more tribal rugs, but they are presented in such a manner here that they are more than at home in this more classically structured work, which, in addition to its traditional medallion, also features other popular classical elements, including large, elegant corner pieces, and a richly detailed border that incorporates colors and design elements from the remainder of the piece. Remarkably beautiful throughout, this antique Indian Agra silk rug is a truly exceptional piece, from its threading, to its composition, to its pallet, to its inimitable patina.
