This is mostly due to the fact that many of the antique rugs from Agra were created as export pieces to places like Europe and the Americas. This luscious little antique Agra rug has a relatively small field offering no more than a coy excerpt of a large vine and palmette pattern. With its chocolate ground, it yields center stage to the grand border dominated by red and soft pink with hints of celadon, reversing the scheme of the field. The richness of this color is stunning, recalling the palette of the classic Mughal carpets. Beautifully woven and endearingly appealing, this antique Indian Agra carpet is a fine example of a highly collectible and widely admired style of antique Oriental rug.
When viewed up close and in person, you will see that the brown colors had oxidized and corroded completely. Wherever you see browns the pile is very low. While the other areas of the rug which boast different colors have stayed pretty much in full thick and plush pile. This is why this antique Agra rug has an embossed / three dimension look that is quite fascinating. It is important to note that oxidation and corrosion in rugs is not considered “damage”. It is simply part the patina, look and feel that can only come with the passage of time and helps add depth and a sense of mystery to the captivatingly rustic area rug.
