Antique Oushak, Turkey, 18th century Magnificent color, precise, savvy drawing, and superb design all betray the relatively early date of this wonderful antique Oushak. The richly detailed palmettes and arabesques are all firmly within the classical tradition of Turkish carpet weaving, as as the palatial scale of this piece. The delicate detail and scale of the borders nicely complement the grand effect of the field design. This carpet constitutes a rare and important link between the Oushak Ottoman court carpets of th 16th to 17th centuries, and those made after 1800.
