Antique square Ushak carpet

Circa 1920
384 × 372 cm 12’7” x 12’2”


An early 20th century antique Ushak carpet, using vary red/pink tones, greens and muted pale blues for the border colour. A fantastic open pattern with geometric motifs and green leaf design, making these a beautiful decorative carpet to place in a variety of rooms.

There are lower areas of pile in the border and scattered in the main field, with some old restoration visible, the structure is strong and there is still lots of wool pile present on the majority of this 100 year old Ushak.  The price reflects the condition and it is a wonderful large antique carpet still in good useable order, supplied with our strong underlay.  A great price for a lovely piece.

Ushak’s were woven in Western Anatolia which was one of the largest rug production areas since the Ottoman Empire.  Their designs tend to be more open than Persian rugs and use soft natural dyes. The faded green border colour works so well with the soft reds and muted golden tones.

Please request a home visit to see this beautiful antique Ushak carpet at home, we love to travel all over the UK, having visited clients and interior designers in private homes 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.
