Oushak Rug, Turkey, Circa 1900 – This delightful antique Oriental rug — a lovely, relatively small antique Oushak piece made in Turkey some time around the turn of the twentieth century — is a rug that demonstrates the possibilities of design in context. On this charming little antique Oushak, a pattern of stylized vines with flowers and palmettes unfolds across a deep persimmon ground whose hexagonal form is defined by undulating corner pieces at both ends. A richly detailed border of rosettes and parallel vines set against a celadon green ground encloses the field. The controlled linearity of the border creates a beautiful counterpoint with the pulsating dynamism of the field. Thus, this is a rug that epitomizes the finest qualities of antique Oushak rugs all in a relatively compact field.
