Abstract

The craft of hooked rugs allegedly originated in Maine, and a record paid at auction for a hooked rug is held by Northeast Auctions in Portsmouth, where in 2004, a dealer paid $79,500 for one. In the 1860s, Edward Sands Frost of Biddeford introduced pre-printed hooked-rug patterns on burlap, many of which survive today.
