"American Oriental Rug Weaving"
This glazed terra cotta relief entitled “American Oriental Rug Weaving” was created with Section of Fine Arts support in 1941 by artist Ruth Nickerson.
Originally installed in the Leaksville NC post office at 634 Monroe St. In the 1950’s, Leaksville and 2 other towns combined to form the city of Eden. The old Leaksville post office station was closed around 1991 and the relief moved to the new Eden post office.
