More about the provenance Agra, ca. 1850 | India
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. 1850 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.
