An old Turkish rug, beautifully aged with loads and loads of character here.
Woven in Turkey in the 19th Century, this Oushak rug comes with great history and culture, speaking volumes about its people and a period of time. The ground of this rug is tan but has a red undertone as once upon a time, this rug was indeed, red, dyed naturally with red madder root. The underside of this rug is still red and as a matter of fact, it can also be styled that way. So, you basically have two rugs here to work with. Made of wool on a wool foundation, this rug is durable and has lived over a century with centuries to go. It is a virgin and has had no repairs.
Colors are hard to photograph and is based on lighting and angles so please note this. Each pic you notice is slightly different because of angle and what side of nap we photographed. We are happy to show you this rug on a video call for an up close experience if you are interested.
Condition: low pile and there are some minor holes throughout. We can patch them or leave as is, it is always up to the client and you can advise us how you like your antique rug to be before it ships.
