A finely woven Indian Rug that is stylistically inspired by the motifs found in Persian rugs from the city of Tabriz. Abstract geometric floral shapes are interconnected by a graphic vine design on an ivory border within an intricate border.
The production of antique north indian rugs and carpets in any quantity dates back to the Mughal period of the late 1520's. Beginning with the conquest of Northern India by Babur, weaving workshops developed around the imperial cities of Agra, Fathpur and Lahore. Akbar the Great (1556-1605) and his successors sponsored and encouraged the weaving of splendid Indian versions of classic Persian floral, garden and hunting antique oriental rugs and carpets for sale.
