It's been a while and as I get a lot of positive comments about showing antique rugs thought it was about time.
Reclining Deer with scrolls and Flowers, no size or provenance was provided.
Birds in a tree dated 1895, measures 33 x 47, a collection of August Knapp sold for $7,995. Great use of hit and miss using all the colors in the center of the rug.
This rug below is quite interesting. It is hooked with the straight lines and only change in color provides the design, almost like weaving. The bird and cat are larger than the house, which leans itself to the naive primitive style. Measures 23.5 x 38 but no date given.
Cat and Dog early 20th century, measures 22 x 39.5 from the estate of Susan Parrish.
A faded floral with the blotchy background I like, dated 1880 on burlap 23 x 45.
And last is Pootsie. I adore this rug. Dog named Pootsie late 19th century measures 23 x 36 and is a shirred rug.
Here is a close up of Pootsie.
Hope you enjoyed the mini antique rug show and hope you are pulling a few loops yourself ~ maybe to finish some UFO's for the start of the new year or starting something new. Happy Hooking.
