Oversized Antique Indian Rug
Oversized Antique Indian Rug Description:
This turn of the century Indian antique rugs from Agra is a fascinating study of detail and tradition. The carpet features a stepped lozenge design in inky blue against a field of light beige, with ornate floral abstractions, geometric shapes, arabesques, vinery, serrated leaves and palmettes occurring in a busy yet elegant pattern. Indian Agra rugs are often considered the best of Indian rugs in the post-Mughal period and are highly collectible. Since the golden age of Mughal India, the production of oriental rugs and carpets had virtually disappeared until it was regenerated under British rule.
