Antique Indian Agra Carpet BB2727

Price: $90,000

An early 20th century Indian Agra antique rug, the cream and caramel field with an allover lozenge lattice formed by short serrated brown leaves, each containing flowering branches within a chocolate brown scrolling floral vinery 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 agra 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 carpets had virtually disappeared until it was regenerated under British rule.
