Delicate gardenias, detailed foliage and crimson catkins create an elegant medallion that is offset by the sable brown field of this antique American hooked rug.
Created circa 1910, this charming antique American hooked rug features an elegant bouquet surrounded by a border of undulating oak leaves decorated with concentric details. The informal borders feature marbled accents that emphasize the charming peach color variations and nuanced patterns. The delicate celadon foliage, subtly shaded gardenias, tightly bound buds and carmine catkins create a marvelous bouquet that takes the form of a traditional quatrefoil medallion.
