Guest Book

A tightly hooked rug, American, perhaps Amish, from the 1930’s. Wool on burlap with hand attached black cotton backing. 29 inches long by 22 inches wide. The unusual free hand pattern shows black stars with pale blue crosses in an integrated geometric pattern.

Condition: Overall excellent condition with one professional darned repair on the border between one star and cross (see close up image). One tiny loss of a hooked tuft, a little wear at one edge otherwise very clean with good bright colors.

The very high quality of the hooking and the intricate pattern done free hand indicate that it was executed by a very skilled person.
