Antique Indian Agra Rug BB5940

Antique Indian Agra Rug Description:

What makes antique Indian rugs so desirable for many collectors and interior designers, is undoubtedly their natural elegance. Each Indian rug has a centuries of tradition woven into its pile, even if we do not realize it. Agra rugs are especially well-known in the industry due to their impressive history. 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. In nineteenth century northern India, the art of oriental carpet weaving as a commercial enterprise was revived with stunning results.\n

This stunning Indian Agra rug was woven by hand in the early 20th century, circa 1900. Its exquisite pattern immediately draws the attention. Delicate lattice made of graceful flowering vines. Each lozenge contains floral motifs, just like rug's serrated leaf border and a condensed palmette. Tasteful color palette incorporated in this composition contains ruddy, natural shades of beige, brown and orange, which together create a truly enticing mix that every aficionado of antique rugs is bound to fall in love with.\n

The size of this Indian antique rug, 8'10" × 9'0" (269 × 274 cm), makes it a perfect addition to any household or public venue. At Doris Leslie Blau we take great pride in our work, so we are thankful for our customers' appreciation.
