Antique hooked rug of a cat and mouse
Early hooked rug, or sewn,of a cat and a mouse. It is a nice small size and the subject is great. The cat is looking at the mouse that is outside the trap and you can see the mouse hole off to the left. The technique for making this rug is a mystery to me. It is wool and is wrapped around the weft I think. I have not seen the back and it is so nicely mounted I don't want to open it up. It might be Grenfeld but I am not sure. I know that I love the subject and the rug is in excellent shape. It is 15" by 12 1/2". It dates to the late 19th C.
