Decorative Antique Turkish Oushak Rug 49165
Decorative Antique Turkish Oushak Rug 49165, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Turkish Rugs, Circa Date: 1900 – Soft apricot defines the field of this beautifully faded antique Turkish Oushak rug. The design gives the effect of a framed work of art. An ample border serves as the antique antique Oushak rug’s frame, the narrow inner border of grey contrasting with the apricot field. The main panel is symmetrical both vertically and horizontally. The central rosette is balanced by candelabra-like clusters of flowers suspended from the top and springing forth from the bottom of the panel. Amorphous geometric shapes and stylized flowers surround each of the three main motifs. The corners are rendered in contrasting cream with small motifs that echo the forms of the larger figures in the main panel. The large scale of the pattern complements the size of the antique rug.
The use of a soft ivory color background in the quarters of the Turkish Oushak rug creates a magnificently soft juxtaposition and highlights the central design of the Turkish rug. This helps to draw the eye of the viewer to the center of this extremely decorative and soft antique Turkish Oushak rug.
Another element that the rug weaver used two unified design is the use of soft rusts and oranges in the background of the main field and the main border.
