Two small latch-hook medallions fill the negative space between the medallions with a row of eight pointed stars as a frieze panel at both ends of the field. The two smallivory panels in the top of the field have inscribed dates. The weaver has nicely framed her field composition with a colorful ivory border surround. The carpet is all wool in construction with medium brown wool warps and wefts. The two-cord side over-castings are original and complete. The top and bottom endings are original and complete with both ends sewn secure to prevent any future loss of structure. This carpet suffered from moth damaged areas in the past and those areas werere-piled and re-kotted with the colors having faded over time.Still, this textile makes a dramatically powerfulvisual display as a wall hanging.
