Antique Indian, Late 19th Century - While the weave of this elegant antique carpet discloses its Indian origin, the design of naturalistic roses clusters in staggered array comes from European carpet design, as does the incredibly soft pastel coloration. The border adapts the field design into linear repetition and reduces its scale, cleverly achieving variation and uniformity at the same time. The lustrous, silky sheen of the pile effectively complements the scintillating delicacy of the design.
