Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa date: 1920 – This mesmerizing antique Turkish Oushak carpet has a monumental medallion composition rendered in an elegant palette of oxidized pastels. The alluring low-contrast decorations cast a veil of elegance over the palatial field and stately borders. The blushing apricot-tone ground contains an angular lozenge-shaped medallion with latch-hook extensions that are mirrored in the coordinating spandrels. Scrolling botanical motifs and buff protection symbols are tastefully obscured by the low-contrast color palette, which has a powerful air of elegance and sophistication. The complementary borders and delicate ecru guardbands feature a host of faint botanical figures and scrolling vines that reflect the beautiful motifs and chic colors that define the field. This oversized antique Turkish carpet epitomizes the regional style, which favors angular botanical figures and oxidized colors that flatter modern, traditional and transitional decor.
