Beautiful Oval Shape Early American Braided Rug, Country of Origin: United States Of America, Circa date: 1900 – This lively, colorful rug from around the turn of the 20th century will brighten up any room in your home. This hooked rug was crocheted using a technique that goes back to the Early American era, but that experienced a resurgence in popularity at the end of the 19th century. It is a gorgeous rug and a fascinating piece of American history.

As the industrial era factories began to flood American homes with the mass-produced goods, a desire grew to return to simpler times. The Arts and Crafts Era grew from this desire, and there was a growth in the popularity of the home arts. Americans gained a taste for pieces that looked as if they were touched by human hands and that had a home-crafted look.

During the late Victorian era, women began to become interested in the needle arts and techniques of earlier times. As a result, crochet gained popularity as a pastime. Many times, they would use scrap wools or other cloth to create these beautiful rag rugs. They used large hooks that were often carved from a toothbrush to crochet the fabric strips. The results of this technique are magnificent works of art with bright, shifting colors and a homespun quality.

This antique rug would make the perfect piece for a late Victorian or Arts and Crafts style home. However, its colorful concentric circles also give it an abstract quality that adds color and would allow it to serve as a unique piece of art in a contemporary home, too. Although this is a unique antique piece, with a bit of imagination, it could fit into almost any modern décor. It would also be the perfect piece for a country cottage. Its colors are fresh and energetic, and it will brighten any space with its beautiful colors and vintage appeal.
