Vintage Hooked Rug BB2038
Vintage Hooked Rug Description:
A mid 20th century hooked antique rug, the cream field with a delicate wavy line forming a tile pattern overall with each tile depicting a naturalistically-drawn bird, within a thin border.
From the early 1800's through the middle years of the twentieth century these original compositions allowed the vintage rug makers an opportunity to freely express their creativity. Rag area 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 for sale and hooked 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 are keenly sought after.
