Antique Ushak carpet


Contact Dealer To Purchase

Object Description

A wonderful rare green antique Ushak carpet from Western Anatolia which was one of the largest rug production areas since the Ottoman Empire.  Ushak designs tend to be more open than Persian rugs and soft dyes are not uncommon.  Often younger Ushaks or Oushaks from the early 20th century will be rich red in colour and use bolder geometric designs.  This good condition Oushak or Ushak has a good wool pile throughout the majority of the carpet, with only a few lower areas of pile.  It could well have been supplied by the famous Maple & Co London, sadly their label was tatty and since been removed. But this style was typical of what they purchased for their store.  Dating from around 1920 a wonderful decorative carpet which would suit a traditional or contemporary room.
