Antique Oushak / Ushak Turkish Rug, late nineteenth century This carpet has the kind of lovely golden palette with soft apricot and cognac tones that gives antique Oushaks their reputation as first-rate decorative rugs. Red is used subtly but effectively, as an added accent, especially in the border. While Oushaks often have a bold, angular, large-scale drawing, this one is unusually delicate, detailed, and curvilinear. The central field pattern is almost round, in place of the customary elongated or hexagonal shape. All these curves and lacy details give this carpet an incomparable classic grace and elegance that make it stand out among the finest Oushaks.
