EXTREMELY RARE VINTAGE 1930s Native American
Navajo 48 Star Flag Blanket w/ Row of Peace Doves
Museum Quality - From The Medicine Man's Private Collection
DESCRIPTION: I doubt you will ever find or see another Navajo 48 Star American Flag
blanket like this again.... I purchased this piece directly from The Medicine Man's private
collection... he is a retired doctor and one of America's leading Native American art's collector...
Part of the extreme rarity of this piece is the evidence of a novice weaver... if you look
closely you will see they didn't quite calculate the stripes and star field correctly, they
ended up with 2 additional stripes which left too my blue field which they filled with a
row of "Peace Doves"... the effect is truly unique.........
I had this Flag professionally framed in acid free material set behind Tru-Vue museum glass....
The frame ($1500) looks period but is actually new, the frame manufacturer uses old veneers
fromold antiques and hand pieces them together, the chips and voids of veneer are part of the look...
Framed this piece is large and measures about 3 1/2 feet by 5 feet..... its an incredible
piece that will be the topic of many conversations should you purchase it.... My listing
is for "LOCAL PICK-UP ONLY" as shipping will be very expensive and I cannot be certain
the glass will not break....
APPROXIMATE DATE: 1920-1940
SIZE: Frame Size: 43" x 58" Flag SIZE: 28" x 43"
CONDITION:Very Good vintagecondition, some fading towards
the bottom of weaving but consistent with age of the piece
PAYMENT:Paypal - PLEASE PAY WITHIN 3 DAYSDue to the size of this piece, I'm not offering shipping on this item,but will work with your mover/shipper....I live in a gated community so specific arrangements must be made priorto pick up... The set must be picked up within 1 month of purchase...
