Antique Turkish Oushak Rug BB7097 9'8" × 13'4" $16,000

An early 20th century Turkish Oushak antique rug, the slate field with an allover beige trellis of palmettes and flowering vinery within a camel floral motif border.

Oushak rugs belong to one of the most significant categories of floor coverings. Turkish rugs in general, and Oushak rugs in particular, are woven with the application of the symmetrical knot, also known as the Ghiordes knot, used mainly in Asia Minor, the Caucasus, Iran (formerly Persia), and Europe. The majority of antique Oushak rugs is characterized by relatively loose knots giving them a supple body, and a fairly long, luminous pile which can be attributed to silky, high-quality wool they work with.
