U-1099 - Oversize Antique Turkish Oushak Rug
15ft 02in X 21ft 07in
This pattern on a cream ground is descended directly from the 18th Century Oushaks. Three and a half columns of complex enormous palmettes and elaborate diamond shapes fill the field. The half column at the right is unusual in that Oushak carpets are generally disciplined and organized. Only rarely do they have this kind of pattern displacement. Tan light brown and light green are accent colors. Additional color comes from the light blue stripe in the borders. The weave is coarse and the carpet with an all wool foundation is soft and pliable.
