American Antique Hooked Rug 3187
Antique Hooked Rug, Origin: United States, Circa 1920 — This antique rug feature a hooked design that puts more emphasis on flow and negative space than it does on any real-life patterns or aspects. The rug features a distinct border pattern that contains many layers of woody lines, all surrounding each other, creating distinct movement as they draw closer to the work’s core, where a series of circles await the viewer’s attention. These circles are woven into each other, creating star patterns where the spheres cross. Each circle bears a dot at its center, appearing as both ripe fruit and the rings of a tree.
