Offered for your consideration is a an Antique Dollhouse Rug from the early 1900s. This Delightful Squirrel Dollhouse Rug measures approximately 5-1/4" long (including the fringe, 4-5/8" long not including the fringe) by 3" wide. In the center of this lavender colored rug is a Squirrel. This rug is in very good condition, with great fringe. This piece is stamped on the back; but it is illegible. It does appear to read, Factory No. 30" but I can't make out the rest.
These "Rugs" are really a Tobacco Premiums. They are known as "flannels" and are also called "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. ***Please do NOT try to Wash this flannel because it the image will destroy the image!***
Tobacco Flannels are perfect for a dollhouse, or a nice gift for a collector of tobacco (cigarette, or cigar) flannels!
