Antique Indian Agra Carpet BB0280

Price: $95,000

A late 19th century antique Agra carpet from North India, the brown field with an enlarged stylized palmette and flowering vine trellis overall, within a palmette and angular vine border.

During the sixteenth century the city of Agra, famed for the Taj Mahal, was the capital of the Mughal Empire and the cultural center of Indian art forms such as inlaid stonework, jewelry, miniature paintings, architecture, textile design and rug & indian carpet weaving. In nineteenth century northern India, the art of oriental carpet weaving as a commercial enterprise was revived with stunning results. Since the golden age of Mughal India the production of rugs and vintage carpets had virtually disappeared until it was regenerated under British rule.
