C1920s Red Mesa Anthropomorphic Navajo Rug Blanket Churro Native American Indian:
Offered here is a blanket weight circa 1920s, uncommon Navaho weaving that measures 5 feet long by 3 foot 5 inches wide or 60” x 41”. It is attributed to the Red Mesa 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 nicely handspun long staple Churro and Churro cross sheep wool, both weft & warp. Here is an exciting anthropomorphic mirror image weaving. The image is very stylized in stick form with feathers attached all along each side. The bold red border filled with outlined Chinle type stars makes a great frame to focus the viewers attention on the mirror image. Outstanding weaving here for your consideration.
We obtained this vintage Native American textile out of a very high end Arizona collection just to offer you here on . It has a fine, blanket weight weft count averaging 30 per inch and a fine warp count of 10 per inch. The selvage cords are 100% complete and in excellent 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 four in excellent condition. It comes from a non-smoking home and it is pretty clean but there are about a half dozen faint spots or stains measuring ¼” to ¾” in the white. 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 grayish brown to brownish grey, camel tan, dark chocolate brown, very light tan & ivory white along with aniline salmon-turkey red, yellow, over-dyed black, peach and deep purplish blue. Complete with lazy lines, this example of Native Americana is ready to display in your own hacienda or just tuck away in your private rug & blanket collection.
