1900 Germantown Sampler Navajo Blanket Rug Native American Indian Navaho Textile:
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.
