Horsehead and Good Luck Horseshoes Hooked Rug
  Horsehead and Good Luck Horseshoes Hooked Rug   $1,195

Charming hooked rug with a horse head surrounded by four lucky horseshoes. These two literal elements are surrounded by more abstract concentric squares, making for a very pleasing composition. Nice combination of soft and deep colors. Excellent condition; professionally mounted. Horse's eye is a piece of appliqued cotton; rest of the rug is wool. Circa 1920; measures 33" x 38".

Fruit and Floral Wreath Hooked Rug: Circa 1930   $1,675  

This is not the usual Floral Wreath Hooked Rug. The extraordinary concentric striated frames provide an entirely new dimension. In the center, it has a subtly op art effect. Throughout, it adds tremendous dimensionality to the background. The composition of the wreath is also out of the ordinary in that it includes pineapples, grapes and pears in addition to flowers. Excellent condition. Wool; measures 54" x 55". Circa 1930.

Pair of Herringbone Pattern Hooked Rugs
  Pair of Herringbone Pattern Hooked Rugs   $1,650

These two visually exciting, unusual Herringbone Pattern Hooked Rugs were certainly made as a pair. I am willing to separate them only because one shows some signs of use while the other does not. Both have a tremendous three dimensional effect. Colors are rich and varied. They are wool; circa 1920. Each measures 35" x 70". Rug on right is sold. Left is $1650.

Mennonite Hooked Rug: Circa 1930; Ontario, Canada   $395  

Imaginative geometric pattern hooked rug that effectively gives the impression of X's superimposed on concentric rectangles. Wool and cotton. Irregularities in the color of the grid are just that - they are not dirt. Very three dimensional impact. Measures 21 1/2" x 38"; circa 1930. From the Mennonite Frey family in Ontarion, Canada.
Mennonite Hooked Rug: Circa 1930; Ontario, Canada
Cat Hooked Rug: Circa 1940; Pennsylvania
  Cat Hooked Rug: Circa 1940; Pennsylvania   $425

Incredibly realistic Hooked Rug in the shape of a Cat, seriously guarding her ball. Mounted on board; measures 30" wide and 23" to tip of ears. Repairs to two areas of the green base do not detract from the droll image. Circa 1940; Pennsylvania origin.
