Antique Indian Agra Rug, Origin: India, Circa: 1900 – Here is a beautifully composed antique Oriental rug – an antique Indian carpet, woven in the Agra style around the turn of the twentieth century. Among the more popular styles of antique Indian rugs, antique Agras boast a fascinating history. Woven in India for Western consumption, Agra was quick to seize on the huge demand for exotic, Indian goods that was coming from Europe around the turn of the twentieth century. A richly detailed Herati pattern spreads gracefully across the field of this elegant antique Agra carpet, but the extremely soft coloration virtually conceals the complexity and density of the design. Only hints of the vines in soft cocoa and pale blue stand out against the champagne ground. Even the border barely contrasts with the field in detail and coloration. Truly a carpet for those who require subtlety and delicacy above all. An excellent example, this antique Agra carpet is an exciting composition.
