Antique Agra Rug, Origin: India, Circa: Turn of the 20th Century (1900) – A classical Persian allover design of palmettes and curling vines unfolds with meticulous precision across the deep wine red field of this lush yet stately antique Agra rug. While the design recalls the repertoire of Safavid Persia, the palette of red, ivory, pale apricot, and sage green retains the Agra carpets of the Mughal period, as does the simple, narrow vine-scroll border. The drawing is exquisite. The design is balanced and symmetrical, and its subtle elegance is matched by the delicate gradations of color alongside the contrasting red field.
