Description This antique Turkish Oushak rug features a striking all-over design of geometric abstractions in shades of brown against a field of light yellow. The stark geometrics of the antique carpet only contribute to the Oriental conceit of the overall presentation. Oushak rugs are renowned for their silky, luminous wool and a weaving pattern that employs traditional tribal techniques, namely the use of larger knots and an all-wool foundation. As these works are often considered some of the finest Oriental large area rugs, many of the masterpieces of the 15th and 16th centuries have been attributed to the Oushak tradition. The late 19th century saw the rejuvenation of Oriental Turkish rug production, and at this time Oushak resurfaced as a preeminent center of the weaving industry. During this Renaissance, floral patterns in the Persian tradition were incorporated into design and decorative antique turkish rugs were woven as European standards demanded.
