Artistic Purple Antique Floral Design American Hooked Area Rug 45135
This antique American hooked rug woven during the turn of the century features an artful background with strong marbling paired with a delicate floral medallion.
Reminiscent of fine marbled paper, this outstanding hooked rug features an artful background with billowing scallops and colorful swirls rendered in a vibrant combination of mulberry pink, raspberry red, burgundy and mauve. Dainty bouquets depicted with a fluid painterly touch are offset by the boldly colored background. Subtle borders doubling as casual spandrels feature recurving acanthus leaves with deeply shaded veins. Bouquets of pussy willow branches, irises, narcissus blossoms and spring flowers with pastel petals decorate the corners and complement the central medallion. Woven during the turn of the 20th century, this entrancing American hooked rug represents the creative genius of artists reinventing Victorian designs and Old World traditions.
