Antique Ushak carpet

Circa 1890
465 × 320 cm 15’3” x 10’5”


Amazing large antique Ushak carpet with golden colours, using a soft red background and a deep yellow border.  This carpets palette really glows and is full of charm. With a large stylised leaf and abstract floral motif pattern, a wonderful open pattern to use in a room. The greens and blues which have been used for the motifs compliments the other dyes so well.  A truly beautiful oversize antique carpet from the late 19th century.

Condition is very good indeed, with most of the carpet showing a nice pile throughout.  Only a few slightly lower areas, with some minimal losses to the outer border at both ends.

Request a home visit to see this beautiful 130 year old Ushak carpet at home at a convenient time for you. You can select a suitable day and time for us to visit, plus choose other carpets to view at home as well.

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.
