Description This circa-1920 antique Turkish Oushak rug features an all-over design with large central herati patterns, as well as floral arabesques and geometric abstractions in shades of brown and beige against a field of neutral beige. Also known as the "fish pattern," the herati consists of a stylized flower usually placed within a diamond shape and framed by diagonal leaves, and is a common staple of Oriental rug weaving. 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 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 rug production, and at this time Oushak resurfaced as a preeminent center of the weaving industry.
