This is a photo of the original rug, hooked circa 1900.
This geometrical floral has large, simple motifs hooked in reds and beiges with a touch of blues, all on a mottled brown and green background. The border consists of alternating stripes of faded red, pinks, browns, greens, blues, lavender and beige...all colors from the center. The corners have faded red hearts outlined by the darks in the center. this rug is easy to hook and color plan, using this rug as a guide. It is also suitable for wider cuts!
