ANTIQUE INDIAN AGRA ORIENTAL RUG. 5 ft 8 in x 4 ft (1.73 m x 1.22 m).

Antique Indian Agra Rug, Origin: India, Circa: Turn of the 20th Century – Quite the beautiful and unique antique Oriental rug, this antique Indian Agra rug, which was originally woven around the turn of the twentieth century. Antique Indian Agra rugs and carpets enjoy a high level of popularity with collectors and designers, who prize these pieces for their classical designs. However, while the design in antique Agra rugs generally derives from the great carpet traditions of Mughal India and Safavid Persian, this one clearly draws on the abstract geometric designs of rugs from nearby China and Tibet. An allover pattern of irregular fine checkers in various reds, browns, blues, greens, and tans repeats aubergine with an inner tan guard stripe. Very modern in its appeal, the design works like a French pointillist painting by Seurat. A beautifully woven and unique antique Oriental rug, this antique Agra rug from the turn of the twentieth century is an exciting example.
