Antique Indian Tapestry Gem Stone Rug, Country Of Origin: India, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – Few countries do luxury as well as India, and this antique Indian tapestry rug certainly represents the pinnacle of palatial elegance. Crafted in the early 20th century, this antique jewel-encrusted tapestry features heavy zardozi stitch work with glimmering threads and shimmering metallic accents. These lavish floral decorations create an endless lawn of millefleur motifs that nearly obscure the background. Intense floral medallions featuring radiant gemstone cabochons create a dramatic focal point surrounded by a sea of dimensional bejeweled flowers and hamsa-style spandrels that maintain the formal composition. Delicate lotus blossom outer borders and stunning main borders decorated with a romantic pattern of reciprocating cornucopias illustrate why zardozi literally means golden stitches.
