Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: 1900 -This mesmerizing, absolutely gorgeous antique Turkish Oushak rug was woven in Turkey sometime around the turn of the twentieth century, possesses a great many intriguing qualities that make it a unique piece. For instance, it is interesting to note that the pattern found in the field of this rug closely resembles the Afshan Repeat and Harshang patterns of classic Persian and Caucasian carpets. However, the all-over design of palmettes and whirling tendrils in pale gold that repeat across the mauve aubergine field of this elegant antique Oushak rug make it a notable piece of the highest artistic caliber. The fine detail and smaller scale of the border provides a nice contrast, while retaining the same coloration as the field, nicely unifying the overall composition. The lustrous, almost silken wool of this decorative antique Turkish Oushak rug, shows off the soft coloration to great effect.
