This circa 1910 Amritsar from India measures 9’8” x 17’8” (298 x 517 cm). It has an overall design of swirls and twisting, twining, vining vegetation with flowering trees, cypress trees and dozens of birds flying in and out of foliage and sitting on branches. All this activity is taking place on a field color of very pale mocha. The flowers are in pale ivory, gold and two shades of blue. There is a center medallion flanked by three smaller medallions containing birds and foliage. All is encompassed by a very attractive pale lemon yellow border containing cartouches in pale mocha and pale sky blue which contain birds and floral motifs. . This rug is essentially full pile. It is woven I believe using pashmina wool that is unbelievably soft and silky. The ends and sides are complete. It is clean and ready to go. The buyer pays the shipping with insurance of $225. This is a great piece of weaving in beautiful Earth tones.
