Offered here is a circa 1950s fancy, colorful old Navaho single
Sunday Saddle blanket that measures 2
feet 4 inches long including fringe, by 2 foot 6 1/2 inches wide or 28” x 30 ½”. It is attributed to the Red Mesa, Arizona
weaving area and is in very good condition.
It was hand-woven by a master weaver on an upright loom of all 4-ply Germantown wool yarns on a replied double 4-ply Germantown wool warp. Here is a classic Red Mesa design with a double
diamond layout with stepped and straight line concentric elements. The border is a classy Greek Key motif all
around. It is a great piece of wall art.
Free postage & insurance to you are included with this sale.
We obtained this vintage Native American textile on
a rug hunt out of an old New Mexico pawn shop just to offer you here on
. It has a very fine, tight weft
count averaging 42 per inch and a fine warp count of 10 per inch. The selvage cords are all in original,
excellent condition. Warp selvages are
2-spiral cords and weft selvages are natural weft loop finished around the
outside warps. The corners are all four
tight, original and in excellent condition. The tassels are all four original
and excellent. All fringe is in excellent
condition. It has not been cleaned, is
clean now & comes from a non-smoking home.
Two and a half inches from one corner on the fringe end of the weaving,
there is an area 3” x 1 ½” where there is a pucker in the blanket where a
number of warps were broken and let the weaving get loose there. Warps have been put back in prior to our
acquisition, so the area shouldn’t unravel.
It is very presentable as is.
Both sides are shown in
photos above. Colors are brilliant in
this piece of old American Indian art and they are: natural blended steel gray & ivory white
along with aniline emerald green, cardinal red, rust red, black, salmon orange,
deep royal blue, dark copper brown, olive green and bright blue. Additional colors in the fringe are yellow
and purple. This example of classy
Native Americana is ready to head your way.

camera doesn’t always catch the reds right.
It usually wants to make the red have an orangy tint. Most always the red is a deeper true
red. Please default to what the
description says for the actual color of red the weaving has.
