SOLD

An early 20th century Amritsar antique rug, the brown field dominated by a gold and beige trellis overall of enlarged split leaves, palmettes and racemes within a rust rosette and vinery border between thick floral meander stripes.

One of the common patterns of vintage Indian rugs are naturalistic floral designs – this feature is typical for carpets woven in the time of Jahangir’s reign. Millefleurs motif can also be found on Indian carpets. Indian amritsar rugs are known to be intricately woven, one can notice that their soft wool and silk warps change the colors across the width of the carpet giving the impression of the rainbow bands. The field is often covered by a myriad of fine flowerheads connected by fine vinework. Antique Indian rugs were widely recognized for their outstanding craftsmanship and today they are still considered to be first-class quality.
