Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – Here is a beautiful antique Oriental rug – an antique Turkish Oushak rug, woven in a distinctly Oushak style. Among all antique Turkish rug styles, Oushak rugs are among the most enduringly popular, admired for their soft and understated compositions and straightforward color pallets. This particular antique carpet is a wonderful example of some of the finer points of the Oushak style, especially in its monochromatic coloration. An unadorned field of soft brown dominates the composition, giving it a decidedly minimalist bent. The borders, however, are rather ornate and classically composed, being characterized by an intricate, traditional vine scroll featuring beautifully rendered leaves and other detail work. The lovely brown tones that make up the field and the detail work give this Oushak a great sense of solidity and evenness. Beautifully composed, this antique Turkish Oushak carpet is a lovely example of a popular antique Oriental rug style.
