Antique Angora carpet

Circa 1880
690 × 448 cm 22’7” x 14’8”


An alluring and magnificent antique Angora carpet from Western Anatolia, woven in Ushak, this type of Turkish carpet are known as Angora carpets. The late 19th century weavers came from villages outside of Ushak and employed tribal techniques. Paramount to these techniques was the use of larger knots on these carpets (sometimes less than 30 knots per square inch) and an all-wool foundation.  This is why Angora carpets and Ushaks have a soft loose feel and their designs are more often very open without classical medallions.

Divine warm reds, golden yellows (famous of Ushak) and pale green/blues combine to create the most enticing palette.  With an all over design and in impeccable condition, this is one of the most charming large scale Angora Ushak carpets we have currently in our inventory

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 open designs and wonderful colours, thus making them easy to place in a drawing room or under a dining table.

We love to travel all over the UK and would be very happy to show you this carpet in situ and many more carpets to see which best suits your home.
