VINTAGE LARGE NAVAJO RUG Transitional Period (1868-1890)
Red Mesa Outline – Eyedazzler Weavings
offerDING STARTS AT $99 LISTED WITH PRICE.
This rug was purchased by my family sometime after 1910 and before WWII. It has been kept, most of that time wrapped in a cedar chest, having been used as a bedspread in the early 1950s, and briefly as a floor covering in a little used room in the late 1960s. It measures approximately 66x85 inches and weighs approximately 12 lbs. Both sides similar but not exactly the same in size.
According to a knowledgable source looking at it several years ago, it was woven during the transitional period (~1868-1890), in the style of Red Mesa Outline with Eyedazzler Weavings.
The colors are DYNAMIC and BRIGHT in spite of slight fading and several areas of light bleeding, as shown in the attached photo. Two corner tassels remain, and are in frayed condition.
I would categorize the rug as a real beauty, of Decorator quality, Its overall condition is good with no moth damage, no odors, no tears nor holes. At some time since its original purchase reinforcement threads were added, but can be easily removed if desired. The rug would make a dynamic wall hanging on a large wall or draped from a large well supported wooden frame.
