Large antique hooked rug Dalmatian dog folk art

Great Folk Art hooked rug of a Dalmatian dog lying down on a scalloped rug. The rug is 4" by 4' and has been sewn down on a black cloth. The stretcher comes with it but for shipping purposes it has been taken off the stretcher. It is mostly wool with some minor boarders and the dog done in silk. There are no repairs and the condition seems to be very good. The pictures pretty much tell it all. It is punchy and well done and the color palate great. The technique of making this rug is sometimes called a pop up rug or a rag rug. The foundation is burlap. The border is black wool with the minor boarders dark brown and tan wool. Then there is a variegated brown and tan. The scallop of the rug the dog is lying on is a green silk and a tan silk material. The red wool field is bordered by brown. The dog is done in the silk material. It is a great example of American folk art at its best. Circa 1890-1920
