This amazing antique 1900s Turkish Oushak rug has got a different personality depending on the lighting, changing colors as the morning sun transitions to the evening moon. Although the color palate is simpler, it brings a lot of pizazz with its deep burnt cantaloupe melon ground and grand scale medallions that Oushak rugs are known for in butter yellow, charcoal gray, and steel blue.
Star motifs, symbolizing happiness and fertility, can be seen throughout this fantastic rug. A running water pattern in the border indicates an importance of water to the everyday life of mankind. Ram’s horns are also present and symbolize power, fertility, and masculinity.
This gorgeous rug is very desirable because of the monumental scale of the art work and design. It has a wool pile, wool warp, and wool weft with a coarse weave. It is also weighted like a large heavy blanket with soft wool that is flexible, giving it a floppy handle. With its massive size, this beauty will surely enhance any space it occupies and provide warmth, elegance, and a welcoming spirit. This weighted beautiful beast is simply incredible and extended at incredible value.
Woven circa 1900 with vegetable dyed wool.
