This is definitely a spectacular, old Turkish rug and we're proud to have it in our collection.
Woven in Turkey circa 1880, this Oushak rug comes with great history and culture, speaking volumes about its people and a period of time. It encompasses both a floral design, with an all over pattern on a red background. It has great appeal with old world charm and wool that was dyed naturally with vegetables. The borders feature a dark teal blue ground or light midnight blue ground. You will notice the variation in wool color and the abrash in the rug, which is absolute character and validation of this rug's age and authenticity.
Antique Oushaks are quite a hit, with many designers and decorators who love and appreciate the color palette, large scale design and special, ornamental and symbolic medallions. Oushaks have become highly desired, collectible rugs and we can see why, but finding one is not easy!
