Finely woven in wool, an unusual antique. Agra rugs have historically been regarded among the most refined decorative carpets. They were commissioned by British nobility during the colonial period to adorn their castles and palaces. This finely woven example, in excellent condition, is distinguished by the exquisite scene of hunters and animals surrounded by floral scrolling and birds. The burnt burgundy is framed by a contrasting border. Agras represent the pinnacle of the decorative rug market in that they embody the classicism of Mughal iconography with a palette that is much closer to western sensibility. Agra rugs manifest the ideal syncretism of style, and for this reason they have been the first choice among interior designers since the 19th century. A true work of art and timeless quality.
