Hooked Rug, America, Circa 1900 - This unique and lovely antique rug – an antique hooked floral rug made in the United States some time around the turn of the twentieth century – is truly an achievement in rug-making. This charming piece possesses many of the qualities most sought after by collectors of such rugs, and would make a proud addition to any home. A lovely curvilinear star pattern structures the field of this unusual circular antique American hooked rug. The floral clusters within it constitute the field while those outside it function as a kind of scalloped border. The use of rich rosy mauve and persimmon orange within the otherwise earthy palette adds a touch of excitement, as does the dynamic circular design around the floral pattern. All in all, this is a piece that is not to be missed. Its charming design and strong composition make it not only a highly desirable piece, but a genuine work of art.
