1920s Churro Crystal Trading Post Navajo Rug Native American Indian Blanket Wool:
Offered here is a great old circa 1915-1925 Navaho weaving that measures 4 feet 6 inches long by 3 foot 2 inches wide or 54” x 38”. It is attributed to the J. B. Moore Crystal Trading Post weaving area and is in very good to excellent condition. It was handwoven by an expert weaver on a primitive upright loom of all Native handshorn, handcarded and smoothly handspun silky old Churro sheep wool, both weft & warp. This great old Crystal weaving has a unique bold geometric center field design surrounded by a broad grey outer field. Inset, in the outer field, is a black & white spiraling motif border all the way around. We just love this textile that really says “I’m Indian” and feel it would look great on any Navajo weaving connoisseur’s wall.
We obtained this vintage Native American textile out of one of two big collections from Arizona just to offer you here on . It has a smooth, even weft count averaging 26 per inch and a warp count of 8 per inch. The selvage cords are all in excellent condition with sides being original, one end replaced and 8” of other end at corner replaced. Warp selvages are 2-spiral cords and weft selvages are 2-spiral cords. The corners are all four tight, original and in excellent condition. The tassels are all four restored to excellent condition. It is pretty clean now & comes from a non-smoking home. (The whites have ivoried with patina over time.) Both sides are even in pattern color and shown in photos above. Colors are great in this piece of old American Indian art and they are: hand carded & hand blended natural variegated steel grey, ivory white and hand dyed aniline over-dyed black. Complete with lazy lines and a Spirit Trail, this example of great Native Americana is ready to display in your own hacienda or just tuck away in your private rug & blanket collection.
