Antique North Indian Carpet
Product inquiry form
A truly elegant and impressive over-size antique North Indian Rug that boasts a flamboyant design with a unique character of its own. An elliptical medallion with a dark cobalt background shaped like an ornate piece of jewelry sits at the centre of a field with an abundance of dancing petals, scrolling vines and elegant leaves in gorgeous soft coral pink, light blue, gold and olive green against a sumptuously rich, luminous red background. The unusually large main border with the same dark cobalt background of the medallion is simply as impressive and striking as the rest of the design and serves not to finish it off but to add its distinct splendor. The lush composition of fanlike large rosettes and lavish palmettes with elegant roses on gently dancing stems, minute blossoms and vinery in between is a distinctly Indian touch. There is an overall sense of delicate symmetry and graceful movement that defines the sumptuous design of the carpet and hints at a transcendent quality of endlessness expanding beyond its borders.
A wonderful work of enthralling craftsmanship, this fascinating North Indian carpet is full of gracious detail. It presents itself in a harmony of motifs in soft, delicate outlines with an overall effect of soothing glory. It is a highly decorative piece that would bring elegance, depth and character to interiors.
