Beautiful Antique Gallery Size American Rag Rug, Country of Origin: America, Circa Date: 1920’s – This antique American rag rug classically combines an eclectic mix of colors with a traditional tartan pattern to create a warm and engaging design that is quite reminiscent of mid-century modern rugs. There are distinct points of variation that seem to split the antique rug into two halves, one with a predominately lighter color scheme and one with a darker color scheme. The border between these two halves is defined by autumnal string of colors, each following the other to create inviting rug patterns. The stitchery of this antique American rug is very coarse and easy to see, resulting in a quaint and rustic appearance that would look at home in any traditional environment.
While at first glance, one may mistake this magnificent antique American gallery size rag rug for the iconic vintage Swedish rugs, it is true piece of Americana. The vast majority of the antique rag rugs don’t feature such defined geometric patterns and very few will incorporate such beautiful contrasting and juxtaposing rug colors. Those two aspects of this breathtaking rag rug set it apart from its counterparts and give it such a unique look and feel.
Naturally, this American rag rug would look prefect in an American Colonial interior design. That said, its mid century modern look and feel would make it a perfect addition and compliment in any Scandi home decor or retro inspired interior design. But regardless of your specific home decor style, this is the type of rug that will only enhance and will not take away nor would it compete with the other decorative elements that are in the room already. It is a rare and magnificent example of American rug rug weaving that deserves to be seen and loved.
