Since the sixteenth century, Antique rugs and Turkish rugs from Oushak (also known as Ushak) 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, as depicted by such artists as Holbein, Lotto, Velasquez, Memling and Vermeer. Until the eighteenth century, the Ottoman carpets with unabated designs such as ‘medallion’ and ‘star’ in royal tones of brick red, terracotta, deep blue and gold were decisively in vogue, and even after that period they have continued to grace European interiors.
