Antique Turkish Oushak Runner BB5359 2'5" × 20'6" $20,000

This circa-1920 antique Turkish Oushak runner rug features a repeating herati pattern in muted brown and blue against a field of neutral beige, with an overall soft, faded patina common to Oriental carpets. Also known as the “fish pattern,” the herati is a stylized design of a flower usually centered in a diamond and framed by diagonal leaves, and is a commonly occurring motif in Oriental rug-weaving. Antique Oushak rugs for sale are renowned for their silky, luminous wool and a weaving pattern that employs traditional tribal techniques, namely the use of larger knots and an all-wool foundation. The late 19th century saw the rejuvenation of Turkish rug production; during this Renaissance, floral patterns in the Persian tradition were incorporated into design and decorative carpets were woven as European standards demanded. Antique runner carpets are often used as a complement or a contrast to antique oriental rugs, or as the transition linking two separate rooms.
