While evoking the image of traditional folk arts, this exciting antique American hooked rug is strikingly modern.

Magnificent and Very Long Antique American Hooked Runner Rug, Country Of Origin: America, Circa Date: 1900 – This antique rug — an intriguing and vibrant hooked rug from America made sometime around the turn of the twentieth century — is a very distinct piece, especially considering the tradition out of which it was born. Antique American hooked rugs tend to evoke the image of traditional folk arts, but this exciting example is strikingly and delightfully modern. Consisting of irregular multi-colored concentric circles on a light cocoa ground, this long rug or runner evokes the effect of Venetian millefiori glass or the mosaic architectural decoration of Antonio Gaudi. Versatility — which is certainly very much on display in this beautiful piece — is a highly desirable characteristic in a runner rug. This particular long antique American Hooked runner rug would nicely complement a Windsor chair or streamlined modern furniture, and would work beautifully in most modern homes — a testament to its quality and artistic invention.
