Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – Oushak is a town in western Anatolia that is known for producing some of the most vibrant and unique carpet designs in the world. This saffron yellow and pink carpet from the early 20th century displays the large floral designs and traditional medallion motif that is found throughout the region.
One of the fascinating characteristics of antique Turkish Oushak rugs is that they often display features of both Turkish carpets and Persian rugs. The motifs on this carpet are large and rather angular, as one would expect to find in antique Turkish rugs, but not as large and angular as in some of those produced in the eastern and central regions of Turkey. The medallion design and arrangement of the floral motifs show a distinctive Persian influence.
Oushak sits at the intersection of two cultures, which allowed local designers to draw from a variety of inspirations. This allowed them to create a style that is unique and characteristic of the region. Oushak carpets are also one of the most diverse Oriental rug classifications in the world. They are known for their use of vibrant color and unusual color combinations, as well as distinctive design sensibilities.
This happy rug is based on a traditional medallion design with formal corners and a large main border with saz-style leaves. The artist used a limited color palette and combined several design techniques to distinguish the different areas of the rug visually. For instance, the area surrounding the medallion uses larger motifs than those found in the corners of the rug. The artist also reversed the background color in the border of the rug. Using the lighter color in the border of the antique rug and the central medallion creates a light and airy feel.
The character of this magnificent antique Turkish Oushak rug is formal, and it will make a vibrant addition to any traditional or modern space. It is an unusual design and shows the skill of the Oushak rug weavers. The use of saffron yellow, pinks, light grays, oranges, and rust tones gives it a warm feeling and adds depth to the design. This carpet is a must for the collector and the perfect piece to add a touch of color to any interior design style.
