Vintage Hooked Rug BB1146
Vintage Hooked Rug Description:
A mid 20th century hooked rug runners, the ivory field with an overblown lilac flowerhead center radiating playful flowers and leaves within a polychrome leaf border.
From the early 1800's through the middle years of the twentieth century these original compositions allowed the vintage area rug makers an opportunity to freely express their creativity. Rag rugs were originally created out of necessity, with limited supplies and only the simplest tools used to braid and crochet useful floor coverings from scraps of discarded fabric. Nowadays, rag rugs and hooked antique oriental rugs are not only perceived through the prism of craft but also significant art that has influenced the world weaving tradition in general. Because of their authenticity and beauty, antique American hooked rugs and rag rugs for sale are keenly sought after.
