Hooked Rug, America, Circa 1900 – A highly unusual scale or feathered pattern makes up the field of this charming antique hooked rug. Soft magenta scales form a diamond pattern amidst a field of light green. The scales are all highlighted to give the illusion of three-dimensionality. While hooked rugs are generally designed in abstract spiral or ring patterns, or as pictorial compositions derived from folk art, this one utilizes a pattern drawn from the geometric repertory of ancient Roman mosaic, making it as rare as it is lovely.
