Red Background Large Size Antique Indian Agra Rug, India, Late 19th Century – Displaying Persian influences rendered in a uniquely Mughal style, this elegant antique rug features a grand strap work medallion set over a fantastic floral arabesque. Lotus blossom palmettes, feathered saz leaves and arching vine scrolls create an elegant allover pattern that is counterbalanced by the bold yet delicately colored strap work details. Minute floral patterns, articulated hamsa motifs with re curved petals and ornate barbed details create a sweeping allover medallion that is offset by the rich burgundy-red field. The floral borders and expansive arabesque that decorate the handsome burgundy field feature golden yellows, muted greens, blushing mauves and complementary hues that conform to Mughal ideals of beauty and elegance. Delicate floral guard bands rendered in a selection of softly oxidized hues contrast the bold colors that decorate the elegantly styled field.
