Lot Essay

An exceptional example of a Hutchinson hooked rug, this finely rendered rug depicts a surreal scene with floating lizard, bird, winged elephant and snake above a sleeping gentleman, all above the words This man hath reached a sorry plight/Strange creatures haunt his dreams at night/Helping hand a mug of beer/Might ease the way to water clear surrounding a hand hoisting a frothy mug of beer.
