Antique Indian Agra Rug 3291
Antique Indian Agra rug which preserves the Mogul reverence for earlier Timurid tradition with its allover reciprocal pattern of stars, squares, and diamonds.
Antique Agra Rug, Origin: India, Circa: Late 19th Century – The 17th century Mughal emperors collected and admired the carpets of their Timurid ancestors in central Asia, and this elegant antique Indian Agra rug preserves the Indian reverence for such tradition. An allover reciprocal pattern of stars, squares, and diamonds contains smaller scalloped medallions and rosettes, all from the fifteenth-century Timurid repertoire. The vine-scroll borders reflect later Mughal tradition, but they harmonize beautifully with the inner detail and color of the field.
