An early 20th century Antique Oushak rugs, the cream field with an unusual centerpiece formed by a ring of polychrome palmettes, with scattered floral motifs overall and unusual stylized spandrels with palmettes within a pale green palmette border.
Since the sixteenth century, antique oriental carpets and Turkish rugs from Oushak (also known as Ushak) have been represented among the carefully chosen and highly esteemed objects d’art in the studied interiors and still life paintings of important European personages, as depicted by such artists as Holbein, Lotto, Velasquez, Memling and Vermeer. Until the eighteenth century, the Ottoman antique rugs with unabated designs such as ‘medallion’ and ‘star’ in royal tones of brick red, terracotta, deep blue and gold were decisively in vogue, and even after that period they have continued to grace European interiors.
