Vintage Brown, Gold, Gray and Green American Handwoven Wool Rug BB6949 7'6" × 9'10" $4,000
Proliferating in regions where winters were long, the climate cold and the economy limited, American hooked rugs have been important utilitarian objects and means of artistic expression for at least a couple of centuries. The vintage rug before your eyes shows the traditional face of this long-established craft. Its design featuring a plain main field enclosed by a border of acanthus leaves brings to mind a cartouche. The color palette consist of extinguished green, brown and gold.
The hooked rug has an intriguing texture of densely packed knots. It was hand-made of high-quality wool. Such execution ensured that the rug will be an object of admiration for more than just the aesthetic reason – it will be a pure pleasure for the hands and feet of its owners.
