Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: 1900 — A woody brown hue accents the rich orange and golden colors of this lovely antique Turkish Oushak rug. Bands of abstracted flower motifs serve as a frame for the simple and uncluttered central design. The orange color is symbolic of piety and humility, while gold signifies power and wealth. Featuring a central motif of budding branches, floral medallions and tiny blooms strewn methodically across the creamy background, this rug symbolically exemplifies the joyous abundance of springtime and humility in the face of Nature’s bounty. The dyes have remained bright and true, with some subtle aging bringing a unique and graceful mellowing to the rug‘s design.
