This sumptuous antique Oriental carpet from India demonstrates the strong ties between classical Indian and Persian weaving of the highest quality
Antique Indian Carpet, 17th Century Closely modeled on the so-called Isfahan carpets of Central Persia, this classic Indian example demonstrates the strong ties between Indian and Persian weaving of the highest quality. The soft lavender-magenta field has a lovely allover pattern of richly detailed flowers and palmettes connected by delicate vinescrolls. Similar palmettes on a larger scale make up the main border along with tapering floral clusters, all on a dark ground that contrasts boldly with the soft pastel hues of the field.
