Hand-knotted in the 19th century, this antique Indian rug called Agra has wool pile over cotton warp and weft, and measures 10′ 9″ × 9′ 6″ (330 × 290 cm). Between 1500 and 1700, there were intense cultural exchanges between the Safavid Empire and the Mughal Empire, which are also reflected in rugs decorations and the influence was not one-way. The great court rugs that characterized the 18th and 19th centuries are often owed to the manufactures of Agra. In this specimen, we admire a continuous floral grid pattern that decorates the whole field. The flowers in staggered parallel rows, which turn left and right in alternating rows, turned upside down in the center of the rug, avoiding attributing a single direction. A sumptuous but composed frame encloses the drawing across the board. Dense and precise knotting, beautiful piece suitable for an environment to lighten.
