A Beautiful Soft and Decorative Antique Turkish Oushak Carpet, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: 1940 – This gorgeous Oushak carpet is delicate and refined. This antique Turkish carpet is distinctive in that it is based on a classic medallion design, but it has the appearance of elegant watercolor painting. Oushak carpets are known for their quality and are perfectly at home any formal setting.

The field of an Oushak Carpet is typically highly ornate and filled with scrolls, floral designs and tribal symbols. This one stands out in its simplicity. Rather than the bold designs one is used to seeing from this area, this antique carpet draws attention to the structure of the design, more so than the design elements themselves. Some of these symbols appear only as outlines, almost as if the carpet were a pen and ink sketch. This technique gives it an artistic quality that stands out among Anatolian carpets.

Oushak is known for its variety in designs and color choices. Rather than using the bold red backgrounds that one typically finds in an Anatolian carpet, this one uses pastels on an ivory background. This gives it a soft look that would work well in a room that showcases exquisite, distinctive pieces.

This piece is for the collector who wants something a bit out of the ordinary in carpet design. It is a beautiful large rug that stands out among other carpets from the area in its simplicity and delicate character. Oushak Carpets are known for their high quality and softness that comes from the local wools that are available and the fineness of the weaving technique. This carpet is a true work art that will complement traditional and tribal interior styles.
