Often thought to be a Persian design as it was seen in some of the earliest examples of 17th century carpets woven in Kirman on a larger scale. Over the centuries it became a smaller tighter pattern used throughout India, Persia and on Turkish weavings. A very durable rug ideal for a study, entrance hall or in front of a fire. Wonderful rich colours, especially the pale blue dye is a particular lovely dye.
The Indian city of Agra in the late 19th century was an area where carpet weaving began to excel, as carpets and rugs were comissioned for the western market. Persian designs were used, but like Ziegler carpets the designs were generally enlarged to show beautiful palmettes and vines with mainly reds, purples, greens and ivory as the predominant colours.
