I got this hooked rug at a flea market on Martha's Vineyard about 10 years ago. While it isn't from the whaling days, it is more than 20 years old. In the second picture you'll notice to the right of the eagle, a place about 3" long, where the wool has come loose. The piece of yarn string is hanging on the backside and can be restrung through the holes. Also, about 6" of the edging on back has come loose. This piece would look great on a wall or on the floor in front of your favorite chair.
