This antique Agra Oriental rug preserves the palatial proportions and elegance of the carpets from India's great Mogul period. Sprawling across he field like a jeweled mesh of Indian rubies, emeralds, and pearls, the trellis design of palmettes and rosettes stands out dramatically on the rich deep brown field. The delicate pattern of the the border similarly provides the effect of a ruby necklace, set off from the field by enclosing minor borders like tiny gems on ivory. The carpet is a masterpiece of richness and finesse, a work of art with enormous decorative effect.
