We have been collecting and dealing in Navajo weavings for many, many years and this is one of the more striking designs that we have had. This completely hand woven rug is made with a pallet of natural colors of cream, brown, and black along with a rich dyed red . The rug is of substantial size measuring about 40 inches by 73 ½ inches. The condition is good although there is some light soiling and several subtle hand-sewn repairs. In our opinion this rug is above average for what would be expected of a rug from the start of the 20th century. If it was ever a floor rug, then is was treated with respect. The bold designs of squares, circles, feathers, and waterbugs combine to make a great graphic statement. There is an early sale tag still sewn on to one corner which we have left in place as part of the history of the piece.
In the graphic style of Arts and Crafts, this is a fantastic looking rug that displays well on the wall or draped over a railing or piece of furniture. We would never put it on a floor as it will never show the drama created by the repeating motif. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to send email.
