Time for another antique rug show and I found a few goodies. Below is Spray of Flowers early 20th century, measuring 22 x 42, collection of Kramer family of PA.
Doves and Birds with center of hooked grapes. No date given but provenance is Ephrata, PA and measures 21 x 37.
Six Houses rug with braided edge measures 31 x 45 and is the estate of Frank and Claire Glaser.
Dog rug with some hit and miss and leaves in design. Also from the collection of Frank and Claire Glaser, measures 29 x 75
This is the back and it appears the last few rows of foundation were hooked thru all layers to protect the edges.
The rug won't be happening for a while as I would want it to be a primitive rug, not portraiture style. But do want to pay tribute to these brave women in rug hooking form.
