U-1194 - Antique Turkish Oushak Rug
12ft 09in X 16ft 03in
This Oushak is in a finer weave with a shorter pile. It may be included in the Borlu subtype. The ivory field has a pattern distantly derived from the popular Persian Afshar designs but rendered here with the additional rough palmettes and cogwheel rosettes. The border of palmettes and cruciform compliments the whole. The overall formality is very light and the elements in ochre and tan drift in and out of focus. This light formality is the most popular of Oushak color schemes.
