Circa 1900 - A richly detailed Herati pattern spreads gracefully across the field of this elegant antique Agra carpet, but the extremely soft coloration virtually conceals the complexity and density of the design. Only hints of the vines in soft cocoa and pale blue stand out against the champagne ground. Even the border barely contrasts with the field in detail and coloration. Truly a carpet for those who require subtlety and delicacy above all.
