Antique American Hooked Rug, late nineteenth centuryThough it might hardly show at first glance, this charming antique American hooked rug is a folk art response to the grand cartouche-framed Savonnerie, Aubusson, and Axminster rugs of nineteenth-century France and England. The sinuous scrolls of the cartouche border have become the stepped corners with their trefoils, while the open field has been elaborated in the classic polychrome speckled pattern of hooked rugs. This extraordinary rug reminds us that the gap between high art and folk art is not so wide as we may think.
