We are offering a very nice specimen sized Navajo weaving that classifies as “raised outline” or “twill weave.” It measures about 17.5 inches by 24 inches and has 11 warp threads to the inch and 14 weft threads per inch. The edges are straight and the corner tassels are all intact. The colors are ox-blood red, gray, white and pale yellow. It is a double stepped diamond pattern with a smaller stepped diamond in the center. The condition is excellent. There are no signs of stains or dirt, no holes or pulls. It is a very heavy and thick weave as is usually the case with raised outline rugs. The smaller size makes this an idea display piece for those of you who wish to drape it over a piece of furniture or railing and do not have the space for a much larger weaving. This would be a nice rug to put into a rustic style frame and hang in your library or den. If you are looking to start a collection of fine Navajo weavings, then this is a great beginner piece for your collection. It is a fine display item.
