This is a photo of the original yarn stitched rug circa early 1800's.
Even though there are significant losses, you can still see the motifs in this rug. The large golden basket, with scalloped edges and curlicue handles, is full of flowers. The flowers are hooked in various shades of gold with blue, cream, brown and red. There is an inner border stripe of gold and cream, with a floral border, all around. Everything is on a dark brownish black background.
