This charming antique hooked rug is distinctively American although its medalion and realistic floral detail recall French Aubusson and Savonnerie carpets.
Floral Antique American Hooked Rug, Country Of Origin: America, Circa Date: 1900 – Antique American hooked rugs are renowned for their beautiful appearance and fine texturing. They arose from the American tradition of weaving, where specialty hooks were used to create a more precise effect within the antique rug itself. Many of these American rugs feature traditional early American motifs, including beautiful leaves and natural arrangements of flowers and blossoms. A simple solid color border surrounds the heart of the antique American hooked rug, where the floral motifs are arranged in a beautifully flowing oval. Two primary oval arrangements are set around each other, with the smaller within the larger, and the comfortable use of natural floral tones lends a sense of realism to the composition as a whole.
