Antique Agra, India, late nineteenth centuryThe greatness of classical Indo-Persian carpet design comes alive on this spectacular antique Agra. At the center a small quatrefoil medallion of lotus flowers spews forth strapwork vines brimming with palmettes of every shape and description. The golden vines and the pastel floral detail sparkle against the richness of the classic red ground. The ivory ground palmette border recalls the detail and palette of Moghul court carpets, providing the perfect foil for the red ground field. The lustrous wool pile enables the transparent depth of the color to achieve its maximum effect and beauty.
