Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – This enrapturing antique Turkish Oushak rug features an arresting arabesque of articulate botanical decorations rendered in a dazzling selection of high-chroma colors. Fiery medallions with turmeric and tomato red accents have a vibrant intensity that is tempered by the exquisite jewel-tone background. Age-old protection symbols, contorted vine scrolls and contrasting outlines of minuscule proportion give the well-developed, impeccably colored composition a traditional Turkish style. The prominent floral decorations and deeply notched warm-tone medallions are juxtaposed dramatically by the ethereal blue-green background, which contains delicate sea foam hues with indescribable turquoise undertones in this beautiful antique rug. Charming floral borders filled with blazing warm tones emphasize the monumental proportions of the square field and cast the Oushak-style decorations in a warm glowing light.
