Antique Ushak carpet

Circa 1890
374 × 272 cm 12’3” x 8’11”


Amazing vibrant colours on this late 19th century antique Ushak carpet, stunning green border with a soft red main field, using bold yellows, pinks and pale blues.  A truly amazing colour combination from these highly sought after decorative antique carpets. 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.

A sturdy pile is apparent over most of this 130 year old carpet and supplied with our brilliant underlay this aids the carpet massively. As it helps prevent movement which in turn helps preserve the carpet on wooden, tiled, sisal or carpeted floors.  In very good original condition, with no losses to the outer design and no large repairs. Some small areas of lower wool pile, but nothing significant, most of the carpet has a high pile throughout. No stains or marks.

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