Vintage Tobacco Rug with Collie Dog!
A wonderful Tobacco Silk Rug featuring a Collie Dog! Great for a dollhouse or doll vignette! This sweet dollhouse rug measures approximately 4-1/2" long by 3" wide. The rug actually measures 5" long including the fringe. In the center of this pink colored rug is a Collie Dog. This rug is in good condition with soft pink silk pink fringe. This piece is stamped "New York" on the back but I cannot make out all the words. See Pic.
These "Rugs" are really a Tobacco Premiums from the early 1900s. They are known as "flannels", "felts" or "silks". They can be used as doll house rugs or they can be sewn together to make a quilt or can be framed.
Comes from a smoke free home.
Tobacco Flannels are perfect for a dollhouse! This one is especially cute!
