MetadataShow full item record
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' or 'Toby Tortoise and the Hare' (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.
