Antique Turkish Rugs — A Magnificent Light Green Colored Room Size Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Turkey, late nineteenth century This bold yet elegant light green colored background room size antique Turkish Oushak rug is is a masterful synthesis of the simple and the complex. The complexity emerges in the delicate detail within the medallion, the corner pieces, and the border. The simplicity resides in relatively limited palette – red and pale mauve for outlines and contour reinforcement, and soft, variegated greenish gold throughout the rest of the carpet. Indeed the dominant green almost makes the overall design look like a see-through openwork tracery. And despite its delicate detail, the drawing is still somewhat rugged and expressive. Rarely does a carpet display such a superlative play of opposites.
