This is a photo of the original rug, hooked circa 1880.
A large snowflake motif with a very busy, striated background that echos the shape of the snowflake. The snowflake has alternating light outlines followed by a medium value and then back to the light value. Don't let this one scare you off. The background can be simplified. The black areas, on the pattern, represent where the medium values go. Please call if you have any questions!
