Hooked Rug, America, Early 20th Century - Although antique American hooked rugs are generally thought to reflect New World folk traditions, they often engage in remarkable dialogue with the rug traditions of far-off lands, like this charming example. The medallion design of the field with its naturalistic floral detail reflects the traditions of French Aubusson and Savonnerie rugs, while the rectilinear interlace border is pure Chinese. Yet these influences come together with remarkable integrity and harmony, testifying to the creative control of traditional American weavers.
