Nope, it isn't Howdy Doody Time, I'm neither Buffalo Bob nor Princess Summer Fall Winter Spring ~ are you old enough to remember that show? I am and looked forward to it as a kid. And if I'm not mistaken Kate Smith came on afterward and started her show with a song ♫♬🎜🎝 "When the Moon Comes over the mountain......."
First rug depicts the animal all rug hookers love, sheep. It is also easy on the eyes; 2 sheep rug circa 1900 which measures 28 x 44.Downingtown Rooster since that is where is is located. It was hooked early 20th century and measures 21 x 22. That background looks great and is probably a black and hound's-tooth. Sure do LOVE that hit and miss border.
I'm guessing this is a Wolf, not a Dog. A shame it is in such bad shape on the ends. It is hooked on burlap and comes from Simcoe County, Ontario. Probably the fact it is hooked on burlap is part of the reason for its fate.
