“This Is Mine“ Black Cat Hooked Rug

“This Is Mine“ Black Cat Hooked Rug


This chair rug is absolutely charming and quirky and was made for the family feline. Measuring roughly 15 by 15 inches, it is hooked with cotton strips on a burlap ground. It is in very good condition and has been professionally mounted.

Over the years I have amassed a small collection of these late 19th C chair rugs with black cats on them, as well as a Hearth rug. But in all of those years, I have only come across one other “This Is Mine” rug. The rationale behind the creation of it was simply thus: that in a sea of simply “normal” black cat chair rugs, this particular one designated that whatever chair it was placed on was the cat’s chair. Hence, the adored feline had her very own seat at the table! It also accounts for the low survival rate of those few that were produced for kitty had claws and shed her fur, so most were probably tossed in the trash.

Beguiling and very folky, it makes for a great conversation piece as well as being a very graphic piece of folk art!
