Beautiful Antique Ardabil Design Indian Amritsar Rug, Country of Origin: India, Circa Date: 1900 – Representing a truly magnificent achievement in rug making, this amazing antique Indian Amritsar rug is actually closely modeled after one of the very greatest carpets ever made — the famous Ardabil carpet, which was originally made in Northern Persia in the early part of the sixteenth century. A stunning rug, this piece is characterized by a scalloped circular medallion with pendant ogives radiating outward like a grand rose window on a medieval church — complete with masterfully done detail work. Within and around the medallions the entire field sprawls with delicate floral and arabesque detail. A magnificent cartouche border frames the entire composition with consummate classical grace. All in all, this is a stunning rug of the very highest order.
