North American hooked rug handcrafted in New England during the 20th century.
This playful rug features an idyllic scene of a black locomotive pulling into a station. The station is shown in the foreground with a small village behind it in a lush, hilly landscape. Speckled yarn is used in the station's roof as well as the landscape behind adding some layers while the smoke billowing over the incoming train and the shadow to the left of the station add movement and life to the composition. It has a calm and appealing color palate which has nicely patinated over time.
In very good condition, signs of wear consistent with age. Recycled materials are hooked onto a burlap back, heavy handle.
The tag on the back says "an original made by Lois Nimke"
