Bay colony Antiques is pleased to offer for sale this wonderful 20th century antique style spotted trout 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. This rug is not dated on the patent section of the label but this label was used by Claire Murray in the early 90’s. The rug has a multicolor border with a Spotted Trout at the center. We purchased this from a local Western MA home and the rug is in wonderful condition. Claire Murray’s initials “CM” are woven into the rug in the bottom right corner and the original Claire Murray label is still present on the back of the rug. The rug measures 33 1/2” wide x 21” deep.
