44439 Antique Oushak, Turkey, late nineteenth century.
This exceptional beautiful and reserved antique Oushak has a delicate design derived from classical Persian ‘Garden Carpets.’ A vinescroll lattice at the center functions as a latent openwork medallion, set against a lovely and relatively open soft green field. Its drooping vertical branches echo those of the willow elements above and below. The main border of serial palmettes against an open terracotta ground reflects the same reserved classic spareness of the field, making this a supremely effective and tasteful decorative carpet.
