Log Cabin Pattern Hooked Rug; Circa 1920;New York   $385

The rug itself is in excellent condition. Measurements are 18" x 36". It is mounted on a homemade stretcher that, in all honesty, is not an enhancement. It should probably be re-mounted or it could be used as a table mat without being mounted.

The rug measures 19 1/2" x 72". It is made almost entirely of wool. The size and design allow it to be displayed equally well... Click for details
