Indian Amritsar BB8112 17'2" × 24'0" $180,000
This magnificent antique rug dating back to circa 1900 is a paragon of its superior craftsmanship. The main field of the venerable Indian Amritsar carpet is covered in an allover lattice of floral medallions and botanical motifs, enclosed within an equally compelling series of borders kept in the spirit of the main design.
Everything is balanced and complemented thanks to the toned and versatile color palette, consisting of light shades of beige, green and little pink. The excellence exceeds the appearance and extends to the making. Thoroughly hand-woven of the finest wool by an apt and skilled artisan, this Indian rug has survived until this day in perfect condition which is the best confirmation of its quality. If properly maintained, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear, bringing in the unique magic of the Orient and a touch of timeless elegance.
