1900 Germantown Sampler Navajo Blanket Rug Native American Indian Navaho Textile For Sale
Offered here is a circa 1900 Navaho weaving that
measures 1 foot 7 inches square excluding fringe or 19” x 19” weaving area and
is in very good + condition. It was handwoven
by an expert weaver on a primitive upright loom of all commercial 4-ply
Germantown wool yarns on a cotton warp.
Here is a great German town sampler with 6 interlocking spiral chain diamond
motifs on the light purple field. The
border is a crisp fine stepped purple and wine red sawtooth motif. (This is actually one weaving we had hanging
in our own home & just took it down to offer it to you.)
We obtained this vintage Native American textile on
a rug hunt in Colorado just to offer you here on . It has a very fine weft count averaging 40
per inch and a very fine warp count of 14 per inch. The selvage cords are in very good original
condition. Warp selvages are 2-spiral
cords and weft selvages are 3-spiral cords.
The corners are all four tight, original and in excellent condition. The
tassels are all in very good to excellent condition. It has not been cleaned, is fairly clean now
& comes from a non-smoking home. The
side selvages both have some very old fine black thread stabilizing stitching
which really appears to not even be needed.
The purple around the outer border has some fading on one side. Both sides are shown in photos above. Colors are great in this piece of old American
Indian art and they are: all aniline
colors of deep purple, light purple, emerald green, wine red, light yellow,
light gold and copper. This example of antique
Native Americana is ready to head your way.
