This is a replica of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Pashmina Flowers Carpet that is on display as part of their new Islamic collection.
This new pattern features intricate and engaging floral and other highly detailed, intensely colored design details unlike any other item in the collection. The original rug is from Northern India, mid-17th century. (Bequest of Benjamin Altman, 1913. 14.40.714.)
