Oushak Rug in red, green and gold. $18, 000
This exceptional Turkish rug was displayed in 1927 in the original lobby of the luxurious Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Honolulu. It was removed from “The Pink Palace” for safekeeping during World War II, was purchased privately and found a new home in San Diego. The rug is in excellent condition.
Oushak rugs originated in the small town of Oushak in west central Anatolia, just south of Istanbul, Turkey. Unlike most Turkish rugs, Oushak rugs are Persian influenced. They are distinctive in pattern and color. Double knotted for durability and made of superb wool and natural vegetable dyes, Oushak carpets add a splash of color to any room! (L187.1044)
