  • Description
    An early 20th century antique Indian hunting carpet, the camel field with an overall pattern of blue split leaves, floral motifs, hunters and animals surrounding a central elephant within a slate blue border with Peris (Persian for fairy), birds, and floral motifs.Unlike antique carpets manufactured in the prisons of India, antique North Indian rugs were products of a cottage industry controlled by families of carpet weavers. With a knotted pile of the softest pashmina wool, the antique North Indian carpets originated and perfected by these weaving families, have to this day, rarely been equaled. One of the common patterns of vintage Indian rugs are naturalistic floral designs – this feature is typical for carpets woven in the time of Jahangir's reign. Millefleurs motif can also be found on Indian carpets. Indian rugs are known to be intricately woven, one can notice that their soft wool and silk warps change the colors across the width of the carpet giving the impression of the rainbow bands. The field is often covered by a myriad of fine flowerheads connected by fine vinework. Antique Indian rugs were widely recognized for their outstanding craftsmanship and today they are still considered to be first-class quality.
