Product Description

Grenfell Labrador Industries Hooked Mat Handmade in Newfoundland MAP Folk Art

This one of the nicer pieces of Grenfell Industries I have come across. With the original label, it is made from silk and rayon stockings, it depicts a stylized map of Newfoundland, with the North Wind blowing, whales blowing too. It shows a native settlement, boats, and a compass on the corner. These hand made rugs were made by the women, a fundraiser for the Mission established by Wilfred Grenfell in the 1920’s. The tags says” GRENFELL LABRADOR INDUSTRIES HANDMADE IN NEWFOUNDLAND ANF LABRADOR”.

It is in fair condition, NOT perfect, it has some pin holes when held to the light, it has a lightly soiled appearance. It is an estate piece. It measures 22 3/4 x 18 inches. When hanging it has a good decorative look. These pieces are sought after, lots of information online, and books written about them.
