Oversized Vintage Indian Amristar Rug (Size Adjusted) BB6795 14'7" × 33'4" $220,000
This late 19th century Indian Amritsar rug features an elaborate stepped lozenge field with geometric and floral abstractions in beige and blue, and a multi-border perimeter enclosing more botanical patterns. Amritsar rugs and carpets are produced in Amritsar (meaning “the lake of immortality” in Sanskrit), a city located in Punjab in the northwest of India, near the Kashmir region. Indian rugs and carpets from the region began to be manufactured around 1860.
The weavers of this city’s tradition created unique textiles in part because they had not developed a distinctive style of rug-weaving as early as other Indian counterparts. While regions of southern and western India began weaving Persian-influenced antique oriental rugs during the reign of the Mughal emperors, the weavers of Amritsar took their direction from the sensibilities of the West. This antique Indian Armitsar carpet exemplifies the unique tradition.
