Antique American Hooked Rug, Origin: America, Circa: Early 20th Century – Here its a truly beautiful and culturally significant antique rug — a hooked rug that was originally hand made in the United States of America some time during the early years of the twentieth century. A spray of roses hovers amidst a tan field surrounded by a scrolling cartouche and an outer zone of cocoa on this charming antique American hooked rug. Here traditional Americana meets the suave naturalism of European Aubusson and Savonnerie carpets. A piece that is an important part of the art history of antique rugs, this particular rug acts as a sort of connective tissue that demonstrates how the very best makers of rugs have influenced one another, across wide periods of time and wide geographic separations. A charming rug for all time, this hooked American piece is a true delight.
