Antique Amritsar. India, circa 1900 -

A design of outstanding delicacy drawn from classical Isfahan carpets graces this lovely antique Amritsar rug. Here the more brightly-colored palette of the classical forerunner gives way to a warm, golden color scheme more suitable for contemporary decor. The soft color mollifies the exceedingly intricate ornament of arabesques and cloudbands. We are distracted rrom the maze of fine detail so that the design can function primarily around a relaxed contrast between gold and ivory in the field and the border as well.
