HORSE AMISH ANTIQUE TABLE RUG mounted
 



An icon of Amish needlework in terms of technique and coloration. Prancing horse framed in roses and a leafy vine. Outlined sawtooth edge adds liveliness. Made to be a table mat or a small rug. Wonderful composition, fine handiwork; exuberant border, motifs and colors reflective of the community's decorative arts. Professionally mounted on linen to display.
