Large Oversized Ivory Background Antique Agra Rug, Country Of Origin: India, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – A delicate design of wispy, flowering vines repeats in staggered array across the field of this supremely elegant large oversized ivory colored background Indian Agra antique rug. The particular configuration of the forms produces a latent effect of intersecting diamond forms. The main border of openwork oblong cartouches with palmettes reverses the color scheme of the field, with minor flanking borders to smooth the transition. The restrained palette is quite remarkable, consisting only of pale and dark gold with sparing cinnamon accents. Along with the utter finesse of the drawing, it makes for an exceeding lovely decorative Agra rug, despite the rich complexity of the design.
