Antique American Hooked Rug, circa 1900 - Ultimately, the ornamental the detail of this extraordinary antique American hooked rug is exceptionally life-like or realistic. Sinuous honeysuckle vines with additional carnations and grape leaves interlace across the field enclosed by a beanstalk border. The coloration too is life-like but decorative, and it appears particularly nicely against the warm rosy tan ground. Hooked rugs are prized for the homespun charm of their drawing and subject matter, but this one has an incomparable sophistication.
