Authentic 19th Century Indian Amritsar Handmade Wool Rug BB0450 12'8" × 23'2" $95,000
A fine example from our selection of late 19th century Indian Amritsar antique rugs, the camel field with cypresses and floral motifs around a cusped red ochre medallion, within a red ochre and ivory flowering vine and palmette border.
The Western influence and, particularly, the Colonial rule in India, are clearly seen in the magnificent face of antique Amritsar rugs. However, one of the greatest strengths of these fabulous floor covering is their impeccable quality. Based on the top-notch luminous wool, with a cotton foundation, double weft an and asymmetric knot, carpets form Amritsar are distinguished by luxurious feel and extremely indulgent textures. Antique Indian rugs and carpets are characterized by large scale patterns featuring the millefleur designs, mythical beasts and Persian-inspired florals.
