Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: 1900 – This gorgeous long form antique Oriental rug – an Oushak piece made in Turkey some time around the turn of the twentieth century – is truly an achievement in rug-making. This beautiful piece possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors of such rugs, and would make a proud addition to any home. In place of the allover palmette designs often encountered on antique Oushaks, this one has a grand, four-petalled medallion and corner pieces. Sinuous arabesque tendrils curl gracefully across the intervening space of the field, while a lovely vinescroll border frames the entire design. Highly decorative sand and cocoa tones prevail, except for the border with its sparing accents of burgundy rosettes. All in all, this is a piece that is not to be missed. Its beautiful design and stunning composition make it not only a highly desirable piece, but a genuine work of art.
