Size: 5 ft 7 in x 7 ft 1 in (1.7 m x 2.16 m)

This rather unique antique American hooked rug has a bold tan lattice of medallions linked by bands as an allover design.

Hooked Rug, America, Circa 1900 – A bold tan lattice of medallions linked by bands unfolds as an allover design on this rather unique antique American hooked rug. Smaller interior medallions and hourglass forms embellish the lattice, while striated reciprocal cruciform shapes appear to constitute the abstract ‘background’ perceptible behind the lattice. This piece provides a remarkable glimpse into the complexity and sophistication that a gifted folk art weaver can sometimes achieve.
