Antique Oushak / Ushak, Turkey, circa 1920 A delicate allover mina khani palmette design spreads gracefully across the light pistachio green field of this unusually elegant antique Oushak. The small-scale and finely drawn design is uncustomary for an Oushak of the nineteenth or early twentieth century. It comes much closer to the Ushak rugs of the Ottoman dynasty from which it is ultimately descended. But the soft and reserved coloration make this one the most decorative of the later Oushaks.
Style: Oushak / Ushak
