A fantastic antique Ushak carpet woven with beautiful colours and design, an excellent carpet which could work in both a traditional or contemporary setting. This medallion Ushak uses colours and design with a palette similar to Oushaks from the 18th century after the 1920’s and increase in commercial production for the Western market meant they were woven faster and with cheaper synthetic dyes to keep up with demand for the US and Europe. These earlier examples woven in the latter part of the 19th century have great character. There is no major restoration to this carpet and the natural dyes have faded to create an exquisite decorative carpet. Undoubtedly commissioned for the Western market these huge carpets often found there way to the US or Europe for large homes. We have been placing enormous antique carpets of this magnitude in beautiful homes since the 1990’s and they can truly transform a room. Like famous antique Ziegler carpets these large Ushak carpets have big flowing palmette designs and no central medallion which is their major appeal and why Ziegler carpets have a big following and demand. These antique Ushaks have been slowly gathering pace with Zieglers and are in high demand too, so we are delighted to have purchased this stunning carpet for our stock.
