This is a photo of the original rug hooked circa 1900. A floral branch, in the center of the rug, of a large pumpkin-colored flower is surrounded by more pumpkin and navy blue flowers, buds and sage green leaves. The corners have U-shaped clusters of pumpkin bullseye flowers. They sit on a background of soft celery green, at the bottom and pale green at the top. The borders that surround are a sawtooth border of pumpkin and green and finishing with a navy, scalloped border.
