1930s Red Mesa Navajo Rug Native American Indian Blanket Navaho Textile Weaving For Sale
Offered here is a circa 1930s very nice Navaho weaving that measures 5 feet 1 inch long by 3 foot 5 inches wide or 61” x 41”. It is attributed to the Red Mesa weaving area and is in very good + condition. It was hand-woven by an expert weaver on a primitive upright loom of all Native hand shorn, hand carded and smoothly handspun long staple Churro and quality Merino sheep wool, both weft & warp. This old Navajo weaving has a bold design of diamonds formed by big zigzag waves. The rug is finished off with a bold red and dark brown to black ribbon border.
We obtained this vintage Native American textile on a rug hunt here in New Mexico just to offer you here on . It has a smooth, even weft count averaging 26 per inch and a warp count of 7 per inch. The selvage cords are in excellent original condition. 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 excellent with 2 being original, 1 half restored and 1 fully restored. It is fairly clean & comes from a non-smoking home. There are several old internal spots or stains that show up more if held to a light. Several of them still show some on the surface mostly on one side, one spot or stain is a darker along one edge (1” approx.) A professional cleaning could possibly remedy these spots. There is one small 3/8’ snag on the red outlining of a white diamond. 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 & blended natural medium brown, variegated dark chocolate brown & ivory white along with hand dyed aniline cardinal red. Complete with lazy lines, this example of vintage Native Americana is ready to tuck away in your own private rug & blanket collection.
