There are a number of rug catalogs that can be downloaded from Internet Archive:
- Illustrated booklet featuring Rugs, Draperies and Victrolas by H.A. Herz.
- Furniture including everything for the home, office and hotel. (1908)
- Illustrated Catalogue for 1909 by Bigelow Carpet Company.
- Hilger Bros.: rugs, carpets, linoleums, lace curtains, mattings, shades (1910)
- The Passing of the Carpet by Sanitary Mfg. Co. (1904)
- Telfer's Good Carpets and Rugs (190?)
Again, here are some examples of rugs I copied out of the catalogs.
Don't get me wrong, I still want to buy a special arts & crafts donegal rug, but I have no illusions about it being a want, rather than a need.
Thank you for doing this great research! I am rug shopping for my 1912 bungalow and enjoyed looking at these. (Now...if only we could get them at period prices!)ReplyDelete
You're welcome. It's my pleasure. I love doing the research. =)Delete
