large Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Turn of the 20th Century – Here is a truly impressive antique Oushak piece that was hand-woven in Turkey around the turn of the twentieth century. This stately composition is primarily characterized by the allover pattern that plays out over the entire space of the large field. An exciting and dynamic rendering, this allover pattern is rich with traditional elements of design, meticulously woven and resplendent against the soft pink tone of the field. Yellows, teals, and shades f salmon are utilized to an intriguing end, with the details of the allover pattern practically jumping from the field. There is certainly something to be said about the enduring appeal of tribal design aesthetics, which, generally speaking, stress culturally important symbols and patterns, and prize a certain asymmetry and idiosyncratic irregularity – all factors on display in this antique Oushak rug, to phenomenal effect. Meticulously rendered detail work and a close attention to the interplay of color give this Turkish rug a timeless beauty.
