This lovely rug from the 19th Century was described as a Flower Basket with Brackets on dark field which measures 32 x 59. Wow, is so perfect it looks like a painting and would be easy to make into a pattern as the lines are crisp.
Just found this Dog and Cherry Trees rug which had been listed with an auction house and sold for $5,500. Dated late 19th century, it measured 43.5 x 45.5.
This Home Hearth scene is a familiar design for the narrow cut hooker. I've seen some designs with women facing one another having tea with the same windows and fireplace in the background. Wonder if it is a Pearl McGowan design. This one was hooked by Minnie (Nissley) Stehman in 1930 from Ephrata, PA and measures 38 x 68.
A York, PA Flower Mat measures 15 x 16 ~ this is the front.
Flowering Tree, Birds and Deer was hooked early 20th Century and measures 37 x 55. This is the front.
Below is a Lion hooked rug. Yes it may be an old design which might look marvelous when hooked with wool, cotton or textiles used back in the day. This looks like it was punched with yarn which might be faster to accomplish but I personally do NOT like the look.
This Dog appears to be carrying an Easter Egg Basket. It was hooked with wool, homespun and maybe even yarn. It measures 17 x 18.
This is the reverse side of the rug.
Can't believe the hurricane season has appeared already with Arthur's winds blowing like crazy the last 3 days. And the Windy Day pattern still on display at the front door on the sofa table.
