Antique Amritsar Rug, Origin: India, Circa: 1900 – A design of outstanding delicacy drawn from classical Isfahan carpets graces this lovely antique Amritsar rug. Here the more brightly-colored palette of the classical forerunner gives way to a warm, golden color scheme more suitable for contemporary decor. The soft color mollifies the exceedingly intricate ornament of arabesques and cloud-bands. We are distracted from the maze of fine detail so that the design can function primarily around a relaxed contrast between gold and ivory in the field and the border as well.
