I sourced this vintage owl hooked rug from a family that said their grandmother did it in the 1930s. In all probability, based on the style of owl (overall more naturalistic than the stylized owls of the 60s & 70s), and the burlap backing (see last pic) with no color tones, it was done of her own design and likely freehand.
Perfect gift for owl lovers and lovers of country/Americana/rustic textiles or super amped up Halloween decorators!
COLORS: I took the pics in direct sunlight to give best visibility — the yellow is not quite as intense as pictured. Otherwise it’s a creamy off-white background with a black border and an owl in multiple hades of rust to deep dark chocolate brown, with a brown mustard yellow moon with other yellow highlights, yellow eyes, an orange beak, and dusty rose floral accents off of the olive colored branch he’s perched upon.
Good wall-hanging size either on a rod (you create the pocket) or framed.
SIZE: 12″ H x 9″ W.
CONDITION: Excellent! Vintage gift-worthy.
SHOP NOTE: Successfully sourcing the kind of items you love and selling them on Etsy helps make my writing and art career possible. And with my products, together you and I help reduce earth impacts since I source vintage items and resources, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. Everything from a smoke-free, pet-free studio.
