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.

A beautiful and rare piece of Amish textile art that would be a perfect wall hanging or folk art center piece for a table. Wool stumpwork tulips are arranged in a wreath-like formation in perfect Christmas colors on ecru homespun linen. A delicate ¼” crocheted cotton lace edge frames the whole and is a lovely finishing touch. It appears to be hardly used with one slightly shaded area in the center which can be seen in the photograph. Colorful, dimensional and funky this is a fabulous piece of folk art for your home.

29 x 37 inches
Lancaster, PA

It is not common knowledge that a lot of Stumpwork is Amish. This wonderful table mat comes from Lancaster, PA and was created by an Amish woman in the 1890s. This Stumpwork is created using subdued colors. I feel that by using these colors, it continues the feeling of unpretentiousness in the Amish home.

Betsey found this fantastic piece in New Hampshire. It showcases an exuberant confetti-like arrangement of wool and cotton fabrics. This beautiful textural and very graphic piece is perfect for that special place on your wall. It was purchased already mounted and ready to hang as a very unique piece of textile art.

The Shakers’ love of color and design is clearly seen in their creation of rag rugs and mats.

Graphically wonderful for the wall or floor this rag rug from the Shaker community has been worked with wool strips in red, russet, cream, blue, tan and lavender.

This sophisticated piece has a crocheted backing, typical of the Shakers, through which the wool strips are worked.

A wool runner in fabulous original condition, this piece would be a terrific accent for any room or hall. In addition, if you have a high ceiling, this rug could be a wonderful vertical art piece as well. The months and months of work it would have taken to create this rug is staggering to contemplate! The muted colors are perfect for today’s much sought after color palette.
