Antique Ushak carpet

Circa 1880
520 × 418 cm 17’ x 13’8”


Decorative oversize antique Ushak carpet from Western Anatolia with glorious soft peach tones, blue greens, and golden yellow border.  One of the largest rug production areas since the Ottoman Empire, Ushak designs tend to be more open than Persian rugs and softer dyes are not uncommon. Often younger Ushaks or Oushak’s will be rich red in colour and use bolder geometric designs in the 20th century.

This good condition Oushak carpet or Ushak has a good wool pile throughout the majority of the carpet.  Dating from the mid to late 19th century a wonderful open decorative carpet which would suit a traditional or contemporary room.  Condition is good, with only small areas of wear over this large antique carpet, some fading to dyes in apparent with the age of this wonderful early Ushak.

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.
