An antique folk art rug from Victorian days, when there was time to make things...and make things beautiful. 21" x 34" and dating to 1890 or so. Since I am posting this piece, I would like to bring attention to my favorite folk art book title ever "Anonymous was a Woman" which while more often than not true, it is also a lovely sentiment. The book discusses what was flippantly called "Women's work" in all manner of craft, art and more. I am sure the book is long out of print, but used copies are very cheap and worth every penny.
