Age pre-1910. #7650 Agra.
This Agra measures 9’10” X 14’1” (302 x 430 cm). Hey, is this a fantastic rug, or not? Unbelievable color, color, color! This third quarter 19th century Indian carpet is beautiful. When I first saw it, it actually took my breath away and made the hair on my arms stand on end to the extent that the guy I was buying it from looked me up and down and said ‘I guess you like it , don’t you?’ It was so obvious that I couldn’t even bargain on the price! The Prussian blue on a deep ruby ground is astonishingly lovely. There really are only two colors in this rug. Several blue tones and deep ruby red with touches of lighter red for accent. The rug has excellent pile (although these rugs never had a thick pile, they are cut short). The rug is very finely woven. The ends and sides are complete. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance.

Age pre-1910. This antique rug made in India in the last quarter of the 19th century is signed Ghazan. It measures 10’2” x 16’2”. It is a fantastic rug with a light sky blue field with images of Sheikh Masjid Mosque at Karunagappally Kollam in Kerala India at either end of the field sitting on two raised platforms with calligraphy. It has a medium-sized central medallion in very pale blue with pulled floral motif in pale gold and ivory. There are four indigo colored urns containing lovely floral motifs. The field has a very loose scrolling vine and flower motif which looks rather Mogulish. There are four repeated inscriptions in the field at either side of the medallion as well as in the base of the minarets flanking the Mosque. A golden tobacco colored major border contains a shield and palmette motif which is the centerpiece of a five reciprocal border layout. This is fabulous piece of woven art from the 19th century.
