Very Pretty Small Scatter Size Antique Floral American Hooked Rug, Origin: America, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – Although American antique hooked rugs are generally thought to reflect new world folk art traditions, they often engage in remarkable dialogue with the rug traditions of far-off lands, like this charming small scatter size 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 so perfectly, in this small scatter size antique floral American Hooked rug, with remarkable integrity and harmony, testifying to the creative control of traditional American weavers.
