Exceptional Folky Cat Hooked Rug



Western Ontario Mennonite.  Probably from the Tavistock, Ontario area.  I have had other similar images that have surfaced from this region.  It is believed that the family members loved cats and would use these images to honour their unique designs.  This rug was very well looked after and is in perfect condition.  One of the very exceptional hooked rugs of Western Ontario.  Ex Myrtle Reeves Collection, Toronto, Ontario.  Size:  29.5" x 49.5" includes stretcher.        

Circa 1920
