Northern India Antique Carpet
9' 2" x 11' 9" (279cm x 358cm) Late 19th Century
This 130-year-old Indian Agra carpet offers perhaps one of the most exotic color palettes we have encountered, with its rarely seen naturally dyed azure field, deep cranberry medallion and border, strikingly highlighted by shimmering gold. The compelling medallion is overlaid with a refined, virtuoso rendition of the traditional Herati design. Its intricacy of design and deeply saturated palette is profoundly enhanced by the subtle striation of skillful abrash that appears in its ample azure field. Such focused craftsmanship and creativity infuses this beautifully preserved, expertly crafted Agra carpet with incredible energy.
