More about the provenance Agra, ca. 1920 | India

This is a rug made in the tradition of Agra but not made in that region. Agra is located in India and has an ancient tradition of carpet making. Quality carpets were (and are) being made in Agra, mostly with Indo-Persian or merely Persian designs.

This Oriental carpet has a so called "garden design" or as in Persian "Kheshti". The design of Oriental "garden rugs" represents sophisticated garden layouts from a bird's eye view. The oldest garden rugs date back to the 16th century. The legendary rug "Spring of Khosrow" of Khosrow the Sassanide king served as a template. The rugs are divided into fields which are separated by water ditches. The ditches in which often fish and ducks are swimming are flanked by bushes and flowers. Altogether garden rugs are an expression of the special Oriental love of floral beauty which peaked in fantastically laid out gardens.
