Bay Colony Antiques is pleased to offer for sale this wonderful 20th century antique style moose design hooked rug by Claire Murray. Claire Murray started hooking rugs as a hobby and eventually turned her passion into a business. Her main showroom was on Nantucket and the area greatly influenced her designs and they were very popular among Nantucket residents & visitors. As the company grew & demand exploded, production was moved to China but they remained hand woven. Because they are hand hooked; each rug is unique, even two with the same pattern. The rug has Claire’s initials CM at the bottom but the label on the back is no longer present. We purchased this from a local Western MA home alongside another we know to be from the early 90’s. We suspect this one is from around the same time and this moose design seems to be one of the rarer patterns. The moose is standing at the center alongside a brook with Birch trees. The rug has a brown border with different leaves, pine cones, & even mushrooms at the ground. The rug is in great condition and measures 38" wide x 30" deep.
