Antique Turkish Oushak Rug

No. 13164
Turkey, 1915
4 ft. 8 in. x 8 ft. 4 in.
(1.41 x 2.52 m)

A antique Turkish Oushak carpet. This mellow toned Oushak rug has a pattern derived from the popular Persian Harshang (‘crab’) allover motif. The individual elements are large, but the light colors make it easy to live with. The designers were working from books on oriental rugs and we find many antique Oushaks with Persian rather than purely Turkish designs.
