More about the provenance Agra, ca. 1890 | 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 Agra, ca. 1890 has a "Herati" or "Mahi" design (has its origin in Herat, ca. 16th century, short for "Mahi to Hos" meaning "fish in the pond"). A rosette is surrounded by a rhombus which is again surrounded by four bent leaves. The name "Mahi" meaning "fish" was given to this design because the leaves resemble swimming fish.
