Antique Agra, India, early twentieth centuryA rich allover pattern of interlocked swaying, serrated leaves and circular palmettes unfolds in perfect symmetry across the field of this splendid antique Agra. Lush shrubs arranged in series make up the border. While the various elements of the design come from the Classic Mughal Indian rug weaving tradition, the allover configuration s more Persian. The tone-on-tone palette also departs from Mughal precedent and renders the complexity of the pattern more subtle and suitable for contemporary decorative design.
