Nazmiyal Auctions Presents Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Haji Jalili Tabriz Rug, and French Art Deco Carpets This November
Antique room-sized carpets and rugs from Persia, Turkey, Europe, and Asia will soon be available in Nazmiyal Auctions’ No Reserve Antique, Vintage & Modern Rug sale. The live auction will begin on November 13, 2022 at 11:00 AM EST. Nearly 150 curated lots will cross the block in this event.
An antique Turkish Oushak rug dating back to circa 1900 is among the top items (lot #7016; estimate: USD 30,000 – $40,000). Long a world center for rugmaking, the Oushak region experienced a second rise to prominence around the turn of the 20th century. Artisans returned to desirable arabesques and angular patterns to create room-size spreads. The available antique Turkish Oushak rug measures 14 feet 10 inches by 10 feet 6 inches. It uses muted shades of red and cream. A structured pattern of flowers and arabesques covers the entire piece.
Another large antique Turkish Oushak rug is lot #7141, an example that measures 15 feet by 12 feet (estimate: $30,000 – $40,000). It features a striking pumpkin orange shade along the outer border. Lot #7045 is a notable Oushak rug from circa 1910 (estimate: $10,000 – $15,000). Featuring a central diamond medallion, this carpet bears scattered star shapes that add depth and perspective.
A selection of antique and vintage Persian area rugs will also come to the market with Nazmiyal Auctions this November. A key lot among these carpets is an antique Persian Serapi rug from the early 20th century (lot #7010; estimate: $20,000 – $40,000). Rich reds and pinks dominate this example, while deep shades of blue accent the geometric pattern. Bidders can also consider an antique Haji Jalili Tabriz rug that measures 12 feet 4 inches by 9 feet 3 inches (lot #7074; estimate: $15,000 – $20,000). It features a finely detailed pattern with intricate flowers laid over a cream and orange background.
