Antique American Hooked Rug, late nineteenth centuryA delicate and well-spaced pattern of pointed rosettes in staggered rows repeats against the pale tan ground of this exceptional antique American hooked rug. A series of thin stripes comprise the simple border system. The elegant design is unusual within the more homey repertory of hooked rugs. It relates more to American applique quilts, although the elegant drawing is also reminiscent of French Aubusson tapestry rugs.
