A spacious design and a limited color palette make this golden glowing Agra a highly desirable, tremendously decorative piece. The open arrangement of the design allows the background tones to radiate through the foreground and illuminate the finely woven motifs. Echoing the format, the surrounding border eliminates the smaller vine filigree present in the main field and displays its leaves and palmettes with a greater degree of open space. This artful delineation provides a subtle but clear distinction between the two sections while maintaining its cohesive design. Adding an extra layer of depth to this piece is a scant spattering of ruby red, and some tasteful outlining of select motifs, supplying a touch of royalty to the carpet as a whole. Its condition is superb, with heavier pile overall.
