1935? Tortoise and hare rug. 25½" x 58". $19.99 from PAW Enterprises, Monroe, MI, through Ebay, June, '00.
The rug pictures the hare showing off as a hitter while a female hare looks on. The tortoise is presumably pitching to the hare. The motif is vintage Disney, as checking The Tortoise and the Hare<//u> or Toby Tortoise and the Hare<//u> (both 1935) will show. The reverse side shows the attempt to repair a tear or hole near the center of the rug. I never thought I would be listing a rug in this catalogue! Click on either image for an enlargement.
