Hooked Rug, America, Circa 1900 – Here is a truly wonderful antique rug – a hooked rug made in the United States some time around the turn of the twentieth century. This rug represents something genuinely special, and is a testament to the artisans who produced it. A charming piece, this rug possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors and experts, and would bring beauty and sophistication to any home. This outstanding antique hooked rug is an American response to the elegant design of French Aubusson tapestry and Savonnerie pile rugs, both in its naturalistic floral design and its soft, cool coloration. The local flavor emerges in the drawing of the surrounding scroll cartouche and in the classic hooked rug striated ground emerging from behind it. Simply put, this rug is a remarkable piece of work. A lovely and elegant design and composition combine to make this rug something more than a decorative piece: they combine to make it a veritable work of art.
