Auction Rug

A few ladies in my guild like to go to a local auction and they shared their latest find. This beautiful rug hooked by Virginia Hildebrandt in 1977-78. The label shows that it was a Joan Moshimer design. The colors were so bright that it's hard to believe it's 35 years old. The rug is as old as I am, and it's certainly more vibrant and colorful than I am, lol!!!


You will not believe the winning bid! Ready for it? $115!!! I can't believe there wasn't a reserve that had to be reached first. They really got a steal of a deal. I don't know the size of it, but you can see that it's almost as long as the tables in the first picture and I think they were 6 feet. Not a small rug!

The colors she used in the background are fabulous. It's neat how from far away you don't notice the different colors, but they work so well together to make a vibrant design.


Thanks for stopping by. : )
