Beautiful Oval Shape Early American Braided Rug, Country of Origin: United States Of America, Circa date: 1900 – While the design of traditional hooked American antique rugs seems determined by the concentric spiral structure or technique, the masterful use of color in this lively example is full of surprises. A rich selection of reds, blues, greens, mauves, and tans winds its way from the center outwards, ever changing, ever teasing the mind and eye with its rich pulsating rhythms. At times an antique can be startlingly modern in its effect and appeal.
