Offered here is a circa 1930 unusual design old Navaho weaving that measures 5 feet 1 inches long by 3 foot 10 inches wide or 61” x 46”. It is attributed to the Chinle, Arizona weaving area and is in very good condition. It was handwoven by an expert weaver on a primitive upright loom of all Native handshorn, handcarded and nicely handspun Churro cross sheep wool, both weft & warp. The design is an uncommon 3 column layout with small and very large cross elements. The central column also has two fine zigzag lightening motifs. The border is an interesting combination of red & white triangles and half serrated diamonds separated by a dark brown band. .
This vintage Native American textile is fresh out of a Scottsdale collection consigned with us just to offer you here on . It has a smooth, even weft count averaging 24 per inch and a warp count of 6 per inch. The selvage cords are complete, original and in excellent condition. Warp selvages are 2-spiral cords and weft selvages are 2-spiral cords. The corners are all 4 tight, original and in excellent condition. Three tassels are excellent and one is short. It has never been cleaned before, is needing a cleaning now & comes from a non-smoking home. There is some scattered red bleed and moderate soiling in the whites. There are 3 areas of yellow stains (probably pet) with 2 being 8” to 12” in size and one being in the 6” size. On one end there are approximately 15 broken warp loops. A professional should be able to clean this piece and fix the warp loops. Both sides are even in pattern color and shown in photos above. Colors are excellent in this piece of old American Indian art and they are: hand carded & hand blended natural brownish gray, ivory white, dark chocolate brown & medium brown along with hand dyed aniline copper brown, burnt orange & turkey red. Complete with lazy lines, this example of Native Americana is ready to use in your own hacienda or just tuck away in your private rug & blanket collection.
