Antique Indian Amritsar Rug, Country of Origin: India, Circa Date: 1900 – This elegant antique Amritsar was inspired by the Heriz or Serapi carpets of Northwest Persia. The corner-pieces and the richly detailed arabesque vine-scroll border are classic Heriz, although the drawing is a bit more classical or fluid in its detail. The openwork medallion of vines, however, is distinctively Amritsar, as is the cool palette of tans and cinnamon tones. The result is an unusual and consummately decorative carpet that has the monumental design of Persian exemplar, but the restraint and elegance for which antique Amritsar rugs are famed.
