About American Antique Hooked & Braided Rugs
Betsey’s love of antique textiles flows over into her collection of hooked, braided, woven, overshot, tied, and sheared antique rugs, and enjoys many throughout her home. As with her antique quilt collection, Betsey searches for original pieces of art based on graphics, color and condition. We have Amish and Shaker antique rugs, along with antique rugs found throughout New England, including a fabulous sheared rug runner. We are happy to send antique rugs on approval, and the authenticity and condition of each rug is guaranteed.
