Description

Gorgeous faded pinks, yellow tones, and pale blues combine with the blue-green background colour.  The large all over open design is what makes Ushak carpets so desirable too, easy to place and so beautiful to furnish with.  From the late 19th century, the dyes are just majestic! Some minimal wear in places, but supplied with our underlay this would add strength to the carpet and stop it from moving on sisal, wooden floors, tiled floors and carpet.  Thus preventing further wear, as this generally occurs when carpets move around.

The top right hand corner of the carpet has a little area of damage we are yet to repair, but we will undertake soon.  Easily for our expert restorer to reweave very well, we use antique wool to match the colour, so it would not be noticeable once completed.

Please Request a Home Visit to see this beautiful blue-green antique Ushak carpet at home soon.  We love to travel, visiting clients and interior designers all over the UK, as we have done for the last 30 years.

Often younger Ushaks or Oushaks will be rich red in colour and use bolder geometric designs.  This Anatolian carpet has an almost contemporary feel to it and would work in a modern space as well as traditional.  We clean every carpet before offering it for sale and make sure the ends and fringes are secured.  A decorative subtle piece ideal for a soft scheme.

Ushak rugs and carpets were woven in the Anatolian highlands south of Istanbul where they used extremely soft wool and using the larger turkish knot made them weave more open designs than Persian carpets. They are increasingly desirable today due to their sometimes softer palette than persian carpets, thus making them easy to place in a drawing room or under a dining table.

We offer the service of viewing any of our carpets & rugs in-situ in London, Surrey, Hampshire the UK & Europe by appointment. Or visit our large barn showroom in Crondall, Surrey by appointment to view hundreds of rare carpets and rugs.
