Antique Turkish Oushak Rug 47441

Size: 8 ft 5 in x 12 ft 5 in (2.57 m x 3.78 m)
Origin: Turkish Rugs

This lovely antique Oushak Rug bears an ornate, Ottoman-style medallion with complex floral, arboreal, and abstract designs arranged in four layers of outward emanation.

Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – Emblematic of the creative Oushak tribal tradition, this mesmerizing antique Turkish rug has a subtle but unique design gracing its face. The rich gold and tan center medallion forms the focal point of the piece, drawing attention while mirroring the rich dyes of the outer floral designs. These designs, which ebb and flow naturally with the brilliant bronze borders of the rug, bear a uniquely beautiful asymmetry which defines the piece as a whole. The asymmetry of the designs is slight, but intentional, forming glimmering points of interest that serve to draw attention to the carefully woven borders and outer designs. The work is arranged in the traditional, emanating style, with multiple layers of floral motifs greatly emphasizing the complex nature of the design. A close examination reveals a veritable catalogue of native Anatolian flowers, herbs, and trees, distinct marks of which were specifically chosen by the weavers to contrast with the others. The rich interior color gives the design an ornate, labyrinthine appearance, simultaneously urban and arboreal in motifs, while the measured and natural borders suggests the delicate work of weaving that went into the production of this antique rug so many years ago.
