A grand, majestic design of vines and palmettes in shades of tan and apricot wends its way across the rich red field of this magnificent antique Oushak. The drawing is boldly angular in the best Oushak tradition, while the attenuated delicacy of finely articulated cornerpieces and the vinescroll border provide an effective contrast in scale and texture. Oushaks are famed for the softness of their palette, and here the border and cornerpieces maintain that tradition with particular elegance. The saturated red of the field, however, adds an unusually dramatic quality to the overall effect, nicely underscoring the graphic boldness of the palmette design.
