This is a photo of the original rug, hooked in 1850.
I love the colors in this rug! A sprawling floral of red flowers and buds with mossy green leaves, in a tiny pot, on a golden beige background. A wide border of the darker moss green sits against the background and sawtooth border of indigo blues and red. The original has a single braid on the edge. If you are not inclined to braid the edge, you could end in the mossy green or go back to the background color.
