21431 British Needlepoint: circa 1920

Made by Puntro Molley (?).  His needlepoint rugs were more appealing than others made at the time due to his varied use of different kinds of wool (thickness, sheen, etc) and varied stitching methods.  In one piece, perhaps 5-6 types of wool may have been used, creating a texture and look that is more interesting than others in the market.

His designs were usually based on 16-18th century english textiles.

One piece recently sold at auction for 120,000 just to give an idea of value.
