Orange & Grey Antique Navajo Rug 4'11" x 6'8"
Antique Navajo rug, circa 1900-10 during the the period when borders just came into use as shown by the imperfect framing on this piece.
Large size textile, as few could handle such a large vertical loom. Woven on rare dark black warp wool base, where almost all others were done on natural cream wool warp.
No bleed to the rare orange and indigo blue dyes used but fading as shown in some places.
59" x 80" (4'11" x 6'8")
Minor wear and old repairs throughout. Strong and soft but made for the floor, this is a luxurious experience when under foot.
