Cat's Paw is a wonderfully playful pattern of irregular polka dots that is usually done in muted colors. This example is a standout because of the terrific contrast of light and dark. The oatmeal colored background highlights the beautiful shades of red. The outer border is a variegated red and black combination. The rug is very "painterly" whether viewed vertically or horizontally. Condition is excellent. It is sewn to a stretcher measuring 24" x 37". Made of wool; circa 1920. Attached to the back is a tag stating the name of the previous owner and that it was sold for $1100.
