This topic seems to get the most attention with viewers who are either looking for another pattern to hook, a design to draw for profit or perhaps just enjoy the seeing the old rugs for entertainment.
This first one has large snowflake-looking flowers and hearts in the corners. According to the auction site it was hooked 1900 and measures 20 x 39.
An Equine profile hooked pre 1900; such a shame is it is such bad shape. It measures 24 x 30 and this is the front.Eagle measures 29 x 53 and was hooked late 19th century.
The center has hearts (or are they apples), diamonds and central star. The lovely design is said to be circa 1890 and measures 38 x 49. Also in very good shape.
White 1900's Horse measures 22 x 34.
Usually all antique rugs make me happy. But this one disturbed me when I looked at it and decided to post it anyway since there is a lesson here. The white dog rug measures 19 x 36. At first glance it looks like a geometric border on the end. But with that more narrow back it looks as tho it is a dog in a box and it is barking to be released.
