Oval Hooked Rug with Pictorial Silhouettes - 1'10 x 2'11
North American hooked rug, from the first quarter of the 20th century.
This oval hooked rug features a pictorial scene of two figures depicted in silhouette. On the left is a man taking off his top hat, while on the right is a woman in a hoop skirt facing him. Four bird silhouettes and a few blossoms complete the scene. The soft blue background fills the rest of the scene and has lovely abrash throughout. A thin pink border (the same color as the flowers) delineates the blue border around the rug.
In good condition, signs of wear consistent with age. Hooked pile, with a soft handle.
