BEAUTIFUL Ca 1880's SHIRRED RAG RUG POSSIBLY SHAKER

Early 1900's Shirred Rag Rug

This beautiful circa 1880's hand made folk art rag rug is quite unusual. I believe the rug is likely made by the Shakers and is a wonderful example of the style. The rug was made by taking strips of cloth, running a cord or thread through it end to end nd then squeezing the strip into an elongated accordian shape. These individual strips were then sewn end to end and side to side with a great border added to contain the whole. The condition is outstanding with no
rips, tears or repairs.

Dimensions: Length 35" Width 28"
