160419-01 Navajo Rug - Early Ganado with cloud motif
58" x 79"
With Storm Pattern Design Influence with corner Mountain or cloud motif, central cross and design which could reflect the Navajo Homeland or a large Storm Cloud, with small floating elements and lightning border. The simplicity of design, and stratified nature of the carded gray wool, along with the early aniline red dye, all point to an early dating to this piece.
Recently professionally cleaned. Has a small area of discoloration in the white as pictured, and a small stain on the end, also pictured. Excellent condition.
