Antique rug, 19th century, in 17th-century style

Material: Wool on wool
Manufacturing period: 1850-1899
Country: Turkey
Condition: Damages
Rug professionally cleaned: No

This Ushak comes from Anatolia and still looks like its older predecessors
from the 17th century. In Lancashire, England is the Chastleton museum, which has a 17th-century period room decorated with an Ushak that looks just like this one.
Large central hexagonal medallion on a red field with small flowers.
With large quarter medallions at the corners. The final photo shows the Chastleton Ushak.

Knotted on red wool warp and weft.

Shabby chic
Beautiful vintage condition, shabby chic - not for the faint of heart.
Consider using the rug as is - with wear.
This is a style.
One generation ago, this was still the style of the 'old money'; the nobility in old English country estates used it to show that all did not fall out of the sky, but was actually the work of generations.
The older it looks - the better, is what applies to this style.

It now returns in the New York loft apartment where, once again, should
lie a threadbare Persian rug.

New money wants to show that they can afford new things and old money
that they have had those things for a long time and are ahead.

The frayed ends should thus be cherished! Please view the final 4 photos.

    Vreemd dat deze feedback weer verschijnt.
    Hij was al teruggezet door catawiki.
    Nogmaals. ik heb gereageerd, we hebben ook per telefoom/sms contact gehad en ik heb u al een positief voorstel gedaan nl om de gebroken stoelpoot te lijmen. Hoe die stuk is gegaan kan ik niet beoordelen. ik kan en wil daar niet op in gaan. Ik heb 6 stevige stoelen meegegeven. Dat hebben we samen nog gecontroleerd toen u ze ophaalde. Maanden zijn die stoelen hier gebruikt en hier was niets aan de hand. Dat kan ik vaststellen. Verder schrijft u later 6 stoelen ontvangen te hebben en een maand later schrijft u opeens dat het er maar 5 waren - tegenstrijdig moet ik vaststellen. Ik ben nog gaan twijfelen aan mezelf en ben opnieuw gaan tellen op de foto van de advertentie op CW - 6 stoelen.
    Daarna nog gaan kijken in mijn opslag maar natuurlijk ook daar geen 6de stoel aangetroffen. Vanaf mij heeft u er 6 gehad.
    Ik houd er echt niet ééntje achter. U schrijft ook zelf aanvankelijk dat het er 6 waren - I rest my case. Ik was net van plan vandaag een mail naar u te sturen, maar omdat u weer die negatieve feedback wenste te geven doe ik dit dan ook maar hier. Jammer dat het zo gaat. Maar het klopt niet en ik laat het hier bij.

    Bel tappeto che, grazie ad un discreto lavoro di restauro, ha ripreso tutto il suo antico splendore. Sono contento del suo acquisto. Grazie Bieder2506.
