Antique Oushak, Turkey, circa 1900 Antique Oushaks are prized among oriental rugs for their soft coloration and their extremely lustrous wool, and this piece is a classic example. A central medallion occupies the center of the field with cornerpieces radiating around it, while stylized vinescrolls fill the intervening space. But one really has to look to see all this amidst the soft tones of ivory tan, and gold. The rich detail of the border as well recedes into a fluid juxtaposition of tans and golds, making the carpet at once both rich and yet elegantly understated.
