Agra Rug, India, Antique – This magnificent antique Indian carpet from Agra depicts an exquisite repeating pattern. The delicate shrubs create a stunning bi-directional mirror-image pattern with perfect kaleidoscopic symmetry. Pendulous utilitarian plants juxtaposed against Turk’s cap lilies with upward turning petals create a sophisticated repeating pattern that is linked by rippling foliage and a constant color scheme. The chic ecru background creates a sophisticated statement that adds a cooling levity to the delicate and exquisitely detailed composition. The broad Indian-style boarders are filled with filamentous vine scrolls that are arranged in kaleidoscopic permutations. This elegant and inventive antique Agra rug cleverly features varying combinations of creamy ecru, deep malachite greens and robust garnet reds that create a harmonious and beautifully refined composition.
