A rare runner shaped Navajo Indian rug is 3' by 7'10", must have been a special order! This late 1920s Red Mesa outline is rich in color, aniline dyed deep dark red, bright red, orange, black and yellow plus vegetal dyed rust, carded gray and natural white.
The weaver hard great skill in all her diagonal lines and serrated edges. Also the native wool was finely spun.
Note how the dark elements appear to float on the white background.
Fine original condition, appropriate age wear. Lovely silky wool!
