Vintage American Hooked Rug BB1904
Vintage American Hooked Rug Description:
A second quarter 20th century American hooked rug runners, having an overall folk-motif tile pattern formed of stepped rows of octagons, each containing tulips and roses in a pale color palette.
From the early 1800's through the middle years of the twentieth century these original compositions allowed the rug makers an opportunity to freely express their creativity. Rag antique oriental 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, American Rugs and vintage area 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.
