Antique Amritsar Indian Carpet 50201
Antique Amritsar Carpet, India, 1900 — This breathtaking antique rug from India is defined by its relatively straightforward design and color scheme, with deeper details and pleasing shapes present as soon as the viewer takes a closer look. The thick, crimson border that encircles the center of the carpet is itself framed by two smaller hems, sewn in a deep, rich gold hue. Minuscule red blossoms dance along the outermost hem, while set inside the crimson border are gracefully floating gold wreaths, connecting through luxuriously winding vines. At the carpet’s center is a flowing pattern of pink blossoms and winding red shapes, set in contrast against a pale, sandy background.
