Antique Ushak carpet

Circa 1900
395 × 300 cm 12’11” x 9’10”


A very beautiful Anatolian Ushak carpet in amazing warm colours.  The condition of this carpet is exceptional with full pile throughout.

The design is very unusual for this type of carpet as it is an Indian Agra design from the 17th century – We have rarely seen this design used in an Ushak carpet,  so it is likely that this was a bespoke order from a private individual,  or maybe an importer who requested the design to be used.

The wool pile is thick and high throughout and woven on a woollen foundation this is a loose and floppy weave which is typical with rugs from this region.

We would happily welcome you contacting us to request a home visit, having visited customers in their own homes for over 30 years. We feel it is vital to view carpets and rugs at home, so you can make the ideal choice, trying various options in a room. A professional, free service we have offered since 1990.

Please do view all the additional images, all taken in natural light with no editing. We take time to make sure all our images are as close to viewing the rug with your own eyes.

Ushaks were woven in Western Anatolia which was one of the largest rug production areas since the Ottoman Empire.  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.

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.
