Item #EA-04-TT-R3  SMALL BRAIDED OVAL RUG 
folk art braided rug from our folk art catalogue - phoenixant.com Price:  $239.00 US ($275.00 CDN) plus shipping & handling
Quantity: 1
Dimensions:  length 6 11" x width 3 4"
Description:  Moderately sized oval braided rug made by Miss Cooper Jones circa 1950. She was an architect-interior designer, artist and clothing designer. At one time she had her own fashion label. This rug explores another technique for determining the final size and shape. She started with an elongate folded braid in the center, followed by several turns which would result in an oval rug. But here she added some transverse folds at the end before the final two turns around the outside. The result is a rug longer than the number of turns and original center fold would yield. Condition: this rug has seen more traffic than the previous two and is a bit more faded, but otherwise the condition is very good.

folk art braided rug from our folk art catalogue - phoenixant.com Price:  $390.00 US ($450.00 CDN) plus shipping & handling
Quantity: 1
Dimensions:  length 50" x width 35"
Description:  Highly intricate rectangular braided rug made as a wall hanging by Miss Cooper Jones circa 1950. She was an architect-interior designer, artist and clothing designer. At one time she had her own fashion label. This rug explores some very interesting techniques; The center consists of a perfect circle made from 7 turns of braid. Around that are six radially arranged spokes consisting of four braids and the intervening areas are filled with eight braids arranged circumferentially. Outside this are panels of six braids arranged lengthwise. These are in turn separated by two strands of interdigitating braids and the entire ensemble is finally enclosed by a border of three braids. There are carefully contrived openings at the ends of these panels. Think this is complicated? Try following it through the pictures and imagine the original creativity in its construction! Condition: absolutely perfect, no wear because it is was hung, no sign of fading, beautifully vibrant colors.
