Early 20th Century Turkish Angora Oushak Floral Beige, Ivory Handmade Mohair Rug BB6615 10'8" × 15'8" $35,000
Antique Turkish rugs are widely renowned for exquisite workmanship which results in exceptional quality. The antique Turkish Angora Oushak rug before your eyes is all about excellence. In contrast to traditional Oushak rugs maintained in the Oriental aesthetics, this one bears a distinctively European-inspired design. Most probably it was modeled on antique rugs from the French Aubusson or Savonnerie weaving center in order to cater for the tastes of western consumers. Its beige main field adorned with a stylized central medallion with floral accents is surrounded by a decorative cartouche kept in the same spirit. The combination of beige with ivory and touches of dusty green and navy blue is delicate and versatile. It will easily match a wide variety of decors, bringing in elegance and optically enlarging the space.
As stated before, this antique rug can boast of impeccable execution. It was meticulously knotted by hand of mohair, which is supreme wool coming from Angora goats’ fleece. Due to thorough making and top-notch threads, the structure of the rug is both firm and pleasant to the touch. If properly cared for, this antique Turkish rug will withstand many years of usage without any signs of wear, just as it has until this day.
