Circa 1890
350 × 280 cm 11’5” x 9’2”


A beautiful antique Ushak carpet, late 19th century, with a wonderful classical open design with large blue/green palmette design and four early ‘Harshang’ motifs around them.  These stunning early Ushak’s have gorgeous colours to use in any room.  We can see some scattered wear on this antique carpet of 120 years plus, it is though still in good durable condition, and with our underlay it would allow it to sit still and add body on any floor type.

Ushaks 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.  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.
