Antique Ushak rug

Circa 1890
216 × 134 cm 7’1” x 4’4”


A gorgeous and very rare antique Ushak rug in impeccable original condition, the soft green background and muted pink border are dyes popular from this Turkish region.  As this rug is from the late 19th century the dyes have faded to this gentle soft palette.

The design is lovely and open and easy on the eye, with stylised floral palmettes and the simplistic vine border pattern.  The weave on Oushak rugs is generally rather coarse using bigger knotting than Persian rugs, as the wool is extremely soft the pile height is high on this rug.  A wonderful decorative antique rug ideal for many rooms. Oushak rugs or Ushak depending on the spelling preference, 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 soft dyes are not uncommon.  Often younger Ushaks or Oushaks will be rich red in colour and use bolder geometric designs.
