Large Decorative Antique Turkish Oushak Oriental Rug 50674
Decorative Antique Ivory Background Turkish Oushak Oriental Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Turkish Rugs, Circa Date: 1900 – Like so many other Turkish Oushak rugs, this fine antique rug relies on a vibrant color palette to establish definition and character within the threading. Bright tangerine colors stand out against softer peach hues, and the two unified tones are further grounded amidst soothing beige and dark olive. A rich and vibrant border surrounds the piece, its depths filled with broad fronds and whimsically moving vines, acting as a bridge between the elements present. Between the borders at the core is a much lighter backdrop, standing out to draw attention amidst the gleaming colors surrounding it. Here, the viewer is treated to a floating display of leaves, petals and stems, the display almost dream-like in its presentation, invoking feelings of serenity and wonder.
