Hooked Checkered Warm Beige, Red and Blue Handwoven Wool Rug BB3025 8'8" × 12'0" $8,000
A second quarter 20th century hooked rug patterns, having a red, blue and beige checkered field around enlarged sand lozenges containing simple floral sprays within a plain beige outer stripe.
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 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 antique area rugs are keenly sought after.
