Large Decorative Ivory Background Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: 1910’s – This antique Turkish Oushak rug features indigo brown patterning on a background of solid ivory, accented with hints of purer white that increase the starkness of the designs. Unconnected columns of ornaments exhibiting geometric patterns alternate across the Turkish Oushak rug, displaying an overall mirror symmetry about both axes. The center and both outermost columns feature abstract four-petaled flower shapes, emphasized only lightly with minor details, largely left to show the light background color. The complexity of the rest of the ornaments serves to further highlight the pale flower forms in this beautiful and decorative antique rug. Angular lines cross and twine about each other, creating distinctive but enigmatic shapes with jagged motifs. Several borders outline the main body of the large ivory antique Turkish Oushak rug .
