A superb, large scale antique Agra carpet with a touch of vibrant splendor. This fascinating carpet features a formal and abstract garden design with a brilliant execution of color . Its large scale, abstract floral motifs symmetrically placed in vertical axes across the field are glistening in a deep, rich, saturated red against a beige background and next to another set of axes of stylized florals in ethereal light mint green.
The stylized floral motifs that adorn the field densely convey a gentle sense of movement with their soft outlines and despite their abstract rendition, the intricate floral details filling their interiors and surroundings evoke a sprawling, formal garden, which is distinctly indian in form and color.
The multi-layered border decorated with more recognizable, classical persian palmettes and rosettes in a decidedly indian red-on-red coloration executed with great mastery, surrounded by inner and outer guard strips in splendid jade green is more intense and reminiscent of a bejeweled look.
The superbly woven Antique Agra carpet with the ability to be both delicate and intense within the same space is a piece to prize and can be adapted to modern and classical interiors alike.
