A rug review of oldies of course. Will start with Two Roosters from the estate of Davis Meltzer, or at least so the auction house indicates. Am wondering if the rooster on the right was a prized rooster because of the star. You can see the date of 1929 hooked in the border. It measures 32 x 34.
At first glimpse of the floral mat below I thought it might be a section of the rug. Nope, it is the whole mat which is 15 x 22
A center of leaves with sprigs of flower in the corners and diamond shaped border. I love how there are 9 blocks which are hooked in different directions. Actually that is my favorite part of the rug which was hooked in the 19th century.
A Floral with Corner Hearts is another rug from the estate of Davis Meltzer.
Notice the indigenous aquatic, flora and fauna hooked in this piece which measures 35 x 143 long..
