Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Turkey, c. Turn of the Twentieth Century – Here is a beautiful antique Oriental rug – an antique Oushak piece, woven by the great Turkish weavers around the turn of the twentieth century. This comely, decorative piece is in many ways a quintessentially Oushak rug, featuring many of the qualities and characteristics of the style most sought after by collectors and admirers of Turkish and other Near Eastern rugs. For instance, this rug features the typical pallet of the finest Oushak rugs: a sort of subdued, almost monochromatic pallet, in which the detail work is subtly woven into the rug rather than standing out boldly against it. This approach is very much on display here, with subtly different shades of soft red-oranges utilized for the detail work, set against a field of a soft, ivory-tinged pink. The overall effect is one of profound aesthetic unity and balance. A particularly attractive antique Oushak rug, this beautiful composition, with its beautiful detail work consisting of bold vine scrolls, charming floral elements, and impressive geometric figures, is a striking example and a masterfully rendered composition.
