Antique Ushak carpet

Circa 1890
436 × 320 cm 14’3” x 10’5”


A very pretty antique Ushak carpet, with gentle pink dyes and soft greens, some of the famous orange tones and deep purple dyes have been used too.  The overall composition and palette is wonderful, a very large open design of floral motifs with the ‘Harshang’ design, an ancient carpet pattern.  The light green border is quite sublime.  A really beautiful antique carpet woven around 1890-1900 in good original order.

A sturdy pile is apparent over most of this antique carpet, with minimal lower areas.  All of our carpets and rugs are supplied with excellent underlay.  This aids the carpet massively, preventing movement which in turn helps preserve the carpet on a wooden, tiled, sisal or carpeted floor.

Please Request a Home Visit to see this beautiful Ushak carpet at home, we love to travel all over the UK, having visited clients and interior designers for over 30 years.

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.  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.
