BT-G Collection Mounted Penny Rug
c. 1890
42 x 73 inches
New England

This wonderful wool penny rug consists of 3 ¼ inch diameter circles of felted wool each with hand appliqued felted wool flowers accented with fine wool hand embroidery. The 4 inch long scallops, or tongues, along the entire edge also contain felted wool appliques, embroidery and a crocheted edging.

Professionally mounted on a wood frame covered in black cotton and ready for hanging. We show it vertically here, however it hangs as a horizontal work of art in Betsey's large kitchen.
