Spectacular Vintage Handworked Oriental Wool Petit Point Doll House Rug-9x12:
Spectacular Vintage Handworked Oriental Wool Petit Point Doll House Rug
9" x 12"
This spectacular handworked needlepoint or petit point rug is made of wool yarn in a classic Oriental style with red and navy outer border, inner border of blue Greek Key on Pink and inner area with floral motifs in the 4 corners, a center quatrefoil motif, and scattered Asian vases with flowers on a beige background. The camera has a hard time balancing red with other colors but the red is a deep soft color, the navy is very dark, and there is blue, pink, peach, beige, off-white, and gold in addition. This rug is from the late 70s and is in unbelievable condition. I examined it carefully with a 10 power loop and found 1 area in the navy edge where there is a space the width of 1 to 2 stitches that has moth damage, hard to see and easily fixed with a stitch or 2. The rest of the rug is near mint with wonderfully vibrant colors. This rug had never been blocked, the canvas was trimmed and pressed back but I have blocked it and it looks really nice. I will let the new owner decided how to finish the back, the last 2 photos are of the back so you can see the work. I think most people just apply a fusible interfacing to the back to hold the shape although you could certainly hand apply a piece of muslin for a more authentic look. This is a 1:12 scale rug which is 9" x 12" and would look wonderful with the china cabinet I currently have listed.
This rug is from the living estate of a lady here in Atlanta who was a lifelong serious doll collector and doll artisan. Now in her late 80s she has decided to pack up and move to sunny Southern California leaving behind a treasure trove of dolls and accessories after 47 years in the same house. She made this rug as well as several others I will be listing from her estate so check my listings periodically this week.
