A very nice half-round Floral Hooked Rug, dating from the 1930s-1940s most likely. The hand-hooked rug, which measures 32” across (at t he straight-edge) x 19” high is decorated with large, poppy-like flowers and green leaves. Nice shading in the flowers and leaves: several shads of red and green, purple, black, gray, and tan. Tightly hooked with no holes, tears or stains. Some very light, overall soiling. The rug has a black cloth binding all the way around.
My (rug) “hooker” friends tell me that half-round or semi-circular hooked rugs are the hardest to do and the person who made this one was quite skilled. It remains tight and tidy. This one could have been used as a welcome mat, or as a hearth rug.
