A Few Vintage Rugs

I'm in the mood to look at a few old rugs, how about you?  Every once in a while I just need that 'fix'.  

Welcome ~ the rug with a beautiful leaf border was hooked late 19th century and measures 31 x 60.
Primitive hooked Chickens measures 19 x 40 and the auction site dated it between 1900-1920.
Apple Tree Farm was hooked around 1820-30 and measures  33 x 58.  
Below is a well worn rug of a Chicken with a neutral hit and miss striped border.  It  measures 41 x 57.
Here is a flower pot with geometric corners but no dimensions or date provided.
Documented as Maria Beck Warning's Rabbits (1884) it is offered by the Textile Museum of Canada.  The rug measures  27 x 53.
Gee, there isn't one horse rug here so better go find one.  Hmm, let's make that two😊.  Two versions of Hutchinson designs about the Father of our Country George Washington.

Happy hooking and would like to thank everyone for the kind words you said about my profile of Ben so far.
