Antique Turkish Oushak Sandy Beige and Brown Handwoven Wool Rug BB5267 13'0" × 22'3" $40,000
Antique Oushak rugs belong to the crème de la crème of Turkish rugs due to the exceptional skill and diligence of artisans from the renowned weaving center. The antique Turkish Oushak rug before you is an outstanding example of this venerable craft, passed down from generation to generation for centuries. Its character is definitely urban rather than rural as the pattern exhibits flowing, curvilinear forms and great attention to detail.
The entire main field of the antique rug is covered in a spare pattern of stylized botanical motifs, including flower heads, acanthus leaves and palmettes. Moreover, the hexagonal field is adorned with four opulent corner spandrels, embraced by a border with a flowering climber, and finished with two additional outer spandrels at the top of the carpet. Sophisticated and well-balanced, this nature-related composition is rendered in sandy beige with invigorating touches of brown, ochre, sage green and brick red.
Next to the elegant design, this Oushak rug can boast of impeccable execution. It was meticulously knotted by hand of supreme wool to ensure its durability, firm structure and softness of the pile. Under the condition of proper maintenance, it will flawlessly serve its owner for generations, bringing in a distinct oriental vibe and recherché charm.
