Monday Antique Rug Show

Don't want my blog to be a 'same ol same ol' and make you bored so instead of an update on a rug project will show you some antique rug pictures.
Just love this dog rug.  The auction site says it is late 19th century early 20th century.  The shape of this dog looks so close the shape of a Magdalena dog pattern that I hooked below.  
If it is a new hooked adaptation in the first photo they did a damn good job to make it look old!  BTW, I ALWAYS label my rugs as "ANTIQUE ADAPTATION" so as to not fool or confuse a buyer.
Here is an antique of two horses Fred and Maud which is stated to be circa 1900.
Auction site just indicated it was an 'interesting colorful folk art rug pot of flowers and stars.  Provenance wasn't given.
Here is a Hutchinson designed rug called "Dreams that Sustain me". I'm sure you have seen antique rugs where it is a fireman who 'saves the women first' and other colorful humorous sayings.
Just love the dog rug above which was in a collection of a Mt. Crawford home late 19th early 20th Century which recently went for sale.
Don't have provenance on this one but was being sold by an auction site.  Good shape and color if an antique ~ Swans and Water Fountain.
Must have a cat rug for Kelley... so here's a mama cat and kittens with scroll border.

Okay kids, time for me to fix my dinner, my boy Ben already had his and his walk.  Then want to work a tad more on my grandson's Sports Rug before I give you an update.
