Antique Turkish Oushak Carpet, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Turn of the 20th Century – Here is an impressive and elegant antique Oriental rug – an antique Oushak carpet, woven in Turkey around the turn of the twentieth century. This splendid example is practically an archetype of the style, showcasing many of its finer points. First, this charming antique Turkish carpet boasts the monochromatism that makes Oushak rugs and carpets so distinct. The entire carpet, from the border, to the field, to the line work and the detail work that give it is structure, this carpet is colored in subtly contrasting shades of a delicate shade of red orange, tinged with pink. In the border, more of the orange tone comes through. The soft neutral color of the field serves an interesting aesthetic function, contrasting extraordinarily subtly with the coloration of the line work and detail work. The overall impression is one of great unity and composition integrity. A beautiful antique Oushak carpet, this rug is an extraordinary and highly representative example.
