Antique Turkish Oushak Rug BB7031

Price: $14,000

Throughout centuries, rugs from Oushak have been considered one of the finest in the world. Antique oriental carpets from the famed Turkish weaving center 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 since the sixteenth century, as depicted by such artists as Holbein, Lotto, Velasquez, Memling or Vermeer.

The fine specimen before your eyes may serve as an example of Oushak craftsmanship. Its main field is occupied by an elaborate grid of geometricized botanical motifs. This steeped-in-tradition design is enclosed within a series of equally compelling borders with flowering climbers. The color palette balances the richness of patterns with soft tones of camel, brown and ivory against the dusty beige background.

Next to beautiful appearance, the antique Turkish Oushak rug is distinguished by refined workmanship. Thoroughly hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with centuries-old techniques, including the symmetric Ghiordes knot, the rug is durable and resilient. If properly maintained, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear. Versatile, qualitative and elegant, this antique Oushak rug will easily fit into a wide variety of interior arrangements, bringing in the magical touch of recherché art.
