Laszlo - The Weavers Lion
...another rug hooked by Deb Burcin - titled Laszlo and entered into an exhibition at The National Museum of the American Coverlet in Pennsylvania, USA in 2012.
Deb explained the design of the above rug was created by Barbara Carroll. Deb also told me the exhibition consisted of 150 hooked rugs which hung alongside all the antique 'Coverlets'.
Apparently Laszlo, a Lion design, was always woven into the corner of a coverlet by the weaver. In the other corners the name of the weaver and owner/s.
Deb was honoured to be part of this amazing exhibition inspired by antique American Coverlets.
