Pre-1940 Regional Navajo Rug
This Navajo Rug is made from all handspun wool, with two natural sheep colors, the white and grey, and three dyed colors, the red, black and light brown. The edging cords along the selvages and ends are made from light brown tightly twisted 2-ply handspun wool, giving this rug excellent strength, durability and protection from wear. These edging cords are one of the elements found on an authentic Navajo rug. Mexican imitations do not have these edging cords on the selvages or ends, and instead have a fringe on either end rather than the characteristic continuous warp loops bound by the edging cord of the real Navajo rug. The design of this rug is bold, with three columns of stacked diamonds, two of half diamonds against a ground of alternating neutral stripes. Condition of this rug is excellent, with only a few loose yarns, one 1/4 inch soil spot, and a few very small and almost unnoticeable stains on one side. No fading, red is still fully saturated and vivid. Can be used in the existing condition; no need for any restoration. The weave is medium-light weight, in between blanket and rug weight, but leaning towards the rugs weight. Size: 45 inches by 72 inches.
Note: rug is actually square.
