Pictorial Initialed “MH” Navajo Runner

We have been collecting and dealing in Navajo weavings for many, many years and continue to beat the bushes looking for good quality rugs or blankets that are reasonably priced. This completely hand woven regional rug is made with a pallet of natural colors of cream, brownish-black, brown, gray, and aniline dyed red. As a runner it is wonderfully sized for display on a large table or cabinet. It measures about 47 ½ inches by 20 inches. The design is a bit unusual with two serrated diamonds filled with the letters MH or HM. (Perhaps you know somebody with those initials.) It is generally in good condition although there are some minor problems which include breaks in the edges and a bit of unraveling on one corner. It does not appear to have ever been cleaned. We do not think it needs to be cleaned, but that will be your decision. It is well woven, still strong, and the rug has a wonderful supple quality. Runners are rare and a smaller runner such as this is quite unusual. This piece is begging to be displayed on a large table or cabinet. We can not imagine that it was ever on the floor because of its smaller size. The highly graphic design with the strong reds and definitive lettering makes a wonderful statement when hanging on a wall or over a railing. It would also be stunning on a floor but it would a shame to subject such a fine survivor to that kind of abuse. There is no doubt that once you have this elegant piece of art in your home, then you will find a way to show it off to best advantage.

As a piece of art or a decorative element in an Arts and Crafts home, you can not go wrong with this beauty. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to send email.
