Is it contemporary or classic? The design of this wonderful Navajo rug/weaving is often referred to as the corn stalk design. Although it has been around for many years, the stylized nature of the design exudes a contemporary quality. It is substantial in size measuring 63 inches by 72 inches. The weave is very heavy and thick. The rug has survived nicely over the years showing very few signs of its age. We recently had it cleaned in order to return the piece to the vibrant colors that make it so bold. The colors are all natural wools so there is no risk of it ever bleeding. Besides being heavy, it is also very soft. There are a small number of spots that survived the cleaning process, but they are fortunately unobtrusive. We do not know if this rug was ever on a floor. There are no signs of wear or thinning of the wool. The edges and corners are still sound. There are several small pulls in the wool. There is one spot that has several strands of white wool running through some brown wool. It looks like a repair or mistake, but is actually the signature of the weaver. Overall, for a piece that has been around for a while, this rug has survived very nicely. The bold design will lend itself nicely to any decor. It would be great on a floor or hanging over a railing. It would look nice as a wall-hanger, provided you have sufficient space. Imagine it with your Arts and Crafts style home or next to a fine piece of western Molesworth furniture!
