Antique Turkish Oushak Carpet
Antique Turkish Oushak Carpet Description:
An early 20th century Turkish Oushak (Ushak) antique rug, the pale sage field with bold floral motifs and scrolling vines around a cusped central medallion, the salmon spandrels with similar scrolling vines within a sand palmette and leafy vine border.
Oushak rugs (in Turkish known as Uşak Kilimi) are carpets that use a particular set of designs, called by convention after the town of Uşak – one of the largest cities in Western Anatolia, which from the early days of the ottoman Empire to the dawn of the 20th century was a major center of rug production (and still stands among the most important ones in the world). Anatolia literally translates into “land of the rising sun”, and historically, antique turkish rugs for sale are classified as Anatolian.
