Antique Agra Rug, Origin: India, Circa: Turn of the 20th Century – Marvelous in its history, originality and unique approach, this antique Indian carpet from the legendary looms of Agra is a veritable masterpiece that transforms classical Persian designs and gives them a novel sense of style. This striking effect is exaggerated by the lush details and subdued color palette, which includes sapphire blue, ochre, sienna and warm earth tones. Directional floral sprays with diverse features and distinctive details form a seamless allover pattern with flourishing Art Nouveau scrolls, hairline blossoms and decorative songbirds that are offset beautifully by the oceanic blue ground. This magnificent forest of blooming shrubs is framed by complementary guard-bands and diminutive ecru borders filled with lacy palmettes and serpentine cloud-bands that display intricate details and subtle accent colors that mimic the beautifully appointed field.
