Unusual Nine Patch Hooked Rug that is more like a quilt pattern than that of a rug. Made of fairly heavy wools and hooked (or shirred?)in an unusual way that makes the texture look like brain matter. Cleverly composed so that the rust colored squares both outline the Nine Patches and are repeated to form corner blocks. Rich colors; pristine condition. Measures 26 1/2" x 65". Circa 1930.

This is not the usual Floral Wreath Hooked Rug. The extraordinary concentric striated frames provide an entirely new dimension. In the center, it has a subtly op art effect. Throughout, it adds tremendous dimensionality to the background. The composition of the wreath is also out of the ordinary in that it includes pineapples, grapes and pears in addition to flowers. Excellent condition. Wool; measures 54" x 55". Circa 1930.
