World War II Folkart Rug

     This rug was hand-made during WWII, and measures approximately 3 ft. by 6 ft.   The “V” represents “victory”.  The farm scene represents the “victory gardens” and agricultural portion of the war effort.  The aircraft represent the aviation training fields which operated in the state during the war.  (There was the Hillsgrove Army Air Field in Warwick, as well as the Quonset Point Naval Air Station and the Charlestown Navy Auxiliary Air Field.)  The Ships represent the Kiser Shipyard in Providence where Liberty Ships were manufactured to carry goods needed for the war effort.   (Smith-Appleby Museum Collection.)

Smithfield Town Line Plaque – 1930s

     Metal plaques such as the one pictured here once adorned cement pillars that denoted town boundaries in the 1930s.  In some places these pillars can still be seen, but the metal plaques have been removed over the years.  These boundary markers were placed throughout the state, with the plaques representing the different towns on either side.  This is the only known plaque for Smithfield that has survived.  (Smith-Appleby House Museum Collection.)
