This antique rug made in India in the last quarter of the 19th century is signed Ghazan. It measures 10’2” x 16’2”. It is a fantastic rug with a light sky blue field with images of Sheikh Masjid  Mosque at Karunagappally Kollam in Kerala India at either end of the field sitting on two raised platforms with calligraphy. It has a medium-sized central medallion in very pale blue with pulled floral motif in pale gold and ivory. There are four indigo colored urns containing  lovely floral motifs.  The field has a very loose scrolling vine and flower motif which looks rather Mogulish. There are four repeated inscriptions in the field at either side of the medallion as well as in the base of the minarets flanking the Mosque. A golden tobacco colored major border contains a shield and palmette motif which is the centerpiece of a five reciprocal border layout.  This is fabulous piece of woven art from the 19th century.  This rug is in mint condition.  It is clean and ready to go.  The buyer pays shipping with insurance of $225.
