Navajo Yei Rug, Unusual Reptile Border, C1920, Excellent Condition:
American Indian & Folk Art Masterpiece, c1920
Pics tell part of the story on this exceptional NAVAJO YEI PICTORIAL. The more important story, which is left to the viewer, is what in the world are all those individually designed reptile heads doing bordering this beautiful and colorful rug.
About as close to pristine, mint condition one can get. Has one or two of the tiniest wool loss spots. The candy cane selvage is especially nice. Measures 39" x 56". I purchased this directly from an estate in California. The winning buyer will be only its second owner (other than me). Until now, this piece has never been seen in the marketplace.
I have shown both sides. The first side shown has small old pieces of cloth which were sewn on the upper edge so that the original owner could hang the weaving. It has always been my experience that when this type of care is taken with textiles, the rugs are likely to be in the finest condition as it indicates that the rug was hung and not used on the floor. They can be easily removed, but are really part of its history. Therefore, I would recommend keeping the quaint, pre-Velcro addition.
