Cir1915 Churro Early Red Mesa Navajo Rug Native American Indian Blanket Textile For Sale
here is a circa 1915, nice old runner Navaho weaving that measures 7 feet 6
inches long by 4 foot 1 inch wide or 90” x 49”.
It is attributed to the Red Mesa weaving area and is in excellent
condition. It was woven by an advanced
expert weaver on a primitive upright loom of all Native hand shorn, hand carded
and nicely handspun old smooth long staple Churro sheep wool, both warp &
weft. This is a very strong, old cross desi gn rug. Down the center are 7 red crosses, centered
in bold stepped diamonds. Along side the
center row are rows of 8 bold white crosses set in red fine line diamonds
within stepped diamonds. Framing the rug
all around is a nice old bold saw-tooth meandering border. Along the side fields are deep maroon
serrated mountain peak type motifs. Just
a very nice old weaving that would be great on the floor (or wall).
obtained this vintage Native American textile out of a high end collection in
Arizona. It has a very nice weft count
averaging 24 per inch and a warp count of 7 per inch. The selvage cords are 100% complete and in
excellent condition with one side replaced and 3” of one cord replaced on one
end with a few warp loops having been repaired at this place. Warp selvages are 2-spiral cords and weft
selvages are 2-spiral cords. The corners
are all four tight, original and in excellent condition. All four tassels have been restored to
excellent condition. No holes, no odors,
no moth bites, it is fairly clean & comes from a non-smoking home. There is a little faint to very faint red bleed
around 3 of the mountain peak motifs.
Everything should brighten with a wash later on if desired. Both sides are even in color and shown in
photos above. Colors are very good in
this piece of old Native American Indian art and they are: natural hand carded & blended medium
grayish brown, natural dark chocolate brown, natural ivory white along with
hand dyed aniline deep cardinal red and aniline deep maroon. Complete with lazy lines, this nice example
of Native Americana is ready to head your way.
