HUTCHINSON 'A MISS IS AS GOOD AS A MILE' ANTIQUE HOOKED RUG


 
HUTCHINSON 'A MISS IS AS GOOD AS A MILE' ANTIQUE HOOKED RUG
   

 



One of the series of pictorial hooked rugs by James and Mercedes Hutchinson that they created with caricature people and droll quips to describe their interaction. This fun example depicts an amorous couple, the same blond and mustachio'd man believe to be the couple. She designed the rugs and they had them hooked and sold them through auction in NYC in the 40s and 50s. No one knows how many were produced. Each is different in the message it conveys, but all describe romantic or family interactions with amusing irony. This one retains its original coloration. The couple appears in many of their other rugs. One just sold (8/15) at a New England auction for $ 14,000
