Description

Dating from around 1870-1880, this antique Ushak carpet is quite magnificent and alluring.  Soft faded dyes of orange tones, with early variants of green, natural off-white wool and dusty muted pink.  An early design of abstract large leafs, with the same open floral motifs in the border.  A beautiful exceptional early piece in good original order, showing a nice wool pile throughout.

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.

CashCashOften 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.
