Antique Oushak Carpet
Antique Oushak Carpet Description:
An early 20th century Oushak (Ushak) rug having a beige field beneath a finely drawn traditional Persian trellis within a dark beige border with subtle floral motifs.
Oushak antique oriental 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 turkish 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 Oushak rugs for sale are classified as Anatolian.
