Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Turkey, c. 1910 – Here is an impressive antique Oriental rug – a beautiful Turkish Oushak piece from the 1920s. This attractive runner lengt piece is primarily characterized byt its distinct color pallet of reds, blues, and oranges that play delightfully together in a brilliant utilization of contrast. Primarily tribal in overall aesthetic consideration, this Turkish rug features an allover floral pattern that runs the entire length of the field. Beautifully rendered flowers and vine scrolls of red and orange dance intriguingly against the beautiful blue of the field, which itself is characterized by a glorious patina. Further tribal elements appear throughout, including fascinating geometric figures that are woven into the main pattern. The borders are beautifully complementary to the remainder of the composition, consisting of shades of reds and oranges, bedecked with floral designs of the pale blue of the field. The overall effect is one of harmony and unity, making this antique Turkish Oushak runner a particularly fine example of a popular style.
