Antique Hooked Rug, Country of Origin: United States, Circa 1920 – This attractive antique rug from the United States showcases a vista of freshly mined geodes. The earthy landscape of slate, stone and charcoal is countered by brighter jewel shades set inside. A multitude of borders is used around the center, and designs that include a barber’s pole and running water shapes support this dark yet charming hooked rug. Pairing with the deeper neutrals of the grays are vibrant elements of emerald, topaz and lapis lazuli. The silvered whites set around the work seem to resemble diamonds, and the unique appearance of this jewel motif creates an effortless display of natural beauty.
