Stunning pale decorative late 19th century antique Ushak carpet with a rare off-white, grey toned background. The soft yellow border combined with gentle greens, pins, and soft reds. A very open delicate leaf and floral pattern all over, which is real delight. The wool pile is in general extremely good indeed, with a dense pile throughout the main areas, very minimal lower areas of pile. No major losses to the ends or side/selvedges, as far as decorative antique carpets go this one would be very easy to live with and place in a drawing room for instance. A rare large antique Ushak with amazing dyes.
Ushaks were woven in Western Anatolia which was one of the largest rug production areas since the Ottoman Empire. Their designs tend to be more open than Persian rugs and soft dyes are not uncommon. Often younger Ushaks or Oushaks will be rich red in colour and use bolder geometric designs. This Anatolian carpet has an almost contemporary feel to it and would work in a modern space as well as traditional. We clean every carpet before offering it for sale and make sure the ends and fringes are secured. A decorative subtle piece ideal for a soft scheme.
