Tony Sargeant is not sure what this rug is or its date – the central panel seems to be a bridge from ‘The Willow Pattern’ Any suggestions on date or origin would be appreciated. It is in excellent condition except for one very small area of moth damage in the top medallion. The photographs below show details of the central medallion and the back with a white stencilled inventory number.
This is really interesting and unusual – any help in establishing date and precise origin would be greatly appreciated. The overall field is charming and the wool pile is in excellent lustrous soft condition with the exception of a very small area of moth damage to the central medallion field.
