Antique Agra rug

Circa 1890
205 × 140 cm 6’8” x 4’7”


An exceptional quality antique Agra rug with exquisite rich colours and a fine weave from this ancient city of Agra.  Dating from the late 19th century, the dyes and design are typical of this period of weaving.  Regal like colours of rich deep reds, purples, dark indigo blue background with vibrant golds and yellows.  The open floral palmette design is famous of Agra rugs, with cloud band motifs in the centre design too.

 A large ‘Herati’ design border, this rug is well proportioned and in remarkable original condition.  A very collectable and elegant rug with a deep wool pile, acquired from a private collection.

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.
