Antique Agra

Age pre-1910. This circa 1900 Agra measures 11’8” X 17’7” (359 X 539 cm).This king sized rug is done in several shades of yellow. The predominant yellow being the tone of unsalted butter as opposed to salted butter. The rug is exceedingly muted. For instance, there are six borders around this rug in various shades of yellow, but a cursory glance in strong light would make it appear that there is only one border. This motif carries on through the field which has an overall motif with no center medallion. There is a minor border which serves to separate the field from the major outer borders in steel gunmetal blue. The rug is so light that it flashes out the image as if it were made of silk. It looks as if one side of the rug is a different tone than the other but it is not. If one looks at the rug over the nap and then looks into the nap there is a dramatic color shift. The only way to get a clear image of the colors is to look at the close-up photos. This beautiful rug is essentially full pile. The ends are complete and original. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a rug of this quality. read more
