Large Scale Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: 1900 – This large size carpet, an antique Turkish Oushak rug is vibrant in its degree of detail and scope. Though only two primary colors are chosen to define the antique rug, there is plenty of room for a central theme to be established through the creative use of contrast and flow. A rich, thick border of bright tangerine surrounds the core of the large scale antique Turkish Oushak rug, and there are several delicate blooms in white and blue set within. At the center of the carpet is a bright blue field, casting an almost starry backdrop to the floral motifs within. Six large perennials decorate this space, all of which are connected through an elegant series of vines and stems that curl and flow in an airy display of motion.
