540. a magnificent antique Ushak Turkish carpet

Antique Ushak Turkish Carpet

540. Provenance: Ushak, Anatolia, Turkey

Size: 330 x 230 cm

Age: Circa 1920

Condition: Some wear/low pile in the field and some (inevitable) damage to the sides and loss at the ends (repairable).

Notes: The beauty is in the simplicity. Superbly matched colours and drawing. A central medallion in an uncluttered field, framed by a beautiful border containing minor medallions of many and varied colours. Typically coarse in weave, but with the naive charm that has made Ushaks the darlings of interior designers.
