Antique Oushak Carpet
Product inquiry form
This glorious, sun-kissed over-sized antique 19th century Oushak carpet features an all-over design of palmette, lozenge, burdock and tendril motifs, all of which have distinctly geometric outlines. Their slightly varying sizes and free floating outlook give off a quirky, cosmopolitan feel.
An intense, vibrant apricot fills in these motifs and softens their angularity. Its strong presence infuses the rest of the carpet with the deepest, most saturated rays of sunlight, while the brilliantly abrashed cerulean blue background of the field glimmers behind. The luminosity of its wool also helps bring out the exquisite beauty of its colors.
The effect that this marvelous, over-size, antique 19th century Oushak creates is more than the sum of its individual elements. The combination of its deliberately whimsical rendering of classical motifs and its extremely deft use of colors hints at a very sophisticated, cosmopolitan sensibility that would be easily at home in modern, classical, mid-century or eclectic interiors. It is highly decorative and collectible material with its extreme visual appeal and craftsmanship at its best.
