A very finely woven, smaller version of our Star Ushak, this one measures about 63"x 114".  The design is inspired by the floral border that is seen in many Star and Medallion Ushak carpets.  This border has a blue ground and an unusual corner solution for Anatolian designs with the blossom actually turned 45 degrees.  Our carpet is based on a group of fragments owned by the Bay Area collector Jim Dixon, who has been very supportive of our efforts.  These particular fragments, with their high knot count, flawless drawing, and the aforementioned corner solution are thought be among the earliest known of the Star Ushak type.  We have also made several custom versions in this size with a red border.
