Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Origin: Turkey, Circa: Late 19th Century – Here is a fascinating and beautifully composed antique Turkish Oushak rug, woven in the height of that style in Turkey during the waning years of the twentieth century. A classic centralized design of vine spays and palmettes in shades of deep tan and salmon floats gracefully across the soft sand field of this supremely elegant antique Oushak. A large radial cluster of curling leaves provides a subtle form of medallion, although maintaining the general effect of an allover design. The vine scroll border reverses the color effects of the field for a bit of contrast within the overall tone-on-tone palette of the carpet. The delicacy of the coloration is matched by the luster and softness of the Angora wool pile. Overall, this antique Oushak Turkish rug is a striking example of an enduringly popular antique Oriental rug style, beautifully typifying some of the finer design trends of such pieces.
