Vintage Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century – Here is a compelling and beautifully woven Oushak carpet that was made in Turkey during the middle years of the twentieth century. Characterized by a comely and highly representative Oushak composition, this vintage carpet beautifully communicates some of the finer points of that intriguing and important style of rug weaving. Building on traditional Turkish designs, this marvelous vintage Turkish carpet features well-defined botanical decorations with angular features, refined details and saturated colors. Heavily decorated borders and elaborate guardbands offset the uncluttered ground and oppose the warm mustard yellows and rich tomato reds that are favored in the field. The neutral medallion, Hamsa-shaped pendants and creamy white spandrels tie together the classical color triad in an exceptionally effective manner. The glamorous composition is crowned by beautifully detailed guardbands filled with double turrets and tiny cruciform accents that allude to the history behind these symbolic design traditions. A wonderful example, this vintage Oushak carpet from Turkey is a beautiful and sophisticated composition.
