As described by
This unusual antique Amritsar rug has a design whose form and color are adapted from ancient Egyptian enamel work. Winged discs above and below with a lattice pattern of rosettes and lilies at the sides form the frame, all enclosing an open red field with a solitary floral cross. Perhaps commissioned in India by a deeply religious Englishman with passion for Egypt, this rug is truly one-of-a-kind.
