Rare Square Antique Ushak carpet

Circa 1890
395 × 385 cm 12’11” x 12’7”


A rare and stunning square antique Ushak carpet with sublime earthy tones.  The background colour is most unusual, almost a dark stone, brownish dye, with sage greenish tones close up.  The professional photograph you can see is extremely close to how it looks colour-wise with the human eye.   This amazing carpet dates from around 1880-1890, the border design is really exquisite, with a flowing fine pattern of flowers with delicate pinks and green.

The square size and open design is really the perfect combination for a decorative carpet, with no central medallion and strong dyes. This delightful piece could be used in any room.  Look closely and the detail the weavers have used for the small flowers at the end of the vines are just really pretty. Condition is impressive, with no damage or issues.  The plain outer border often gets lost over 100 years of use, this carpet has been used but well looked after.

Please Request a Home Visit to see this beautiful rare 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.
