by Unidentified Navajo (Artist)

Navajo Blanket, 1870s“Navajo Blanket, 1870s,” Unidentified Navajo (Artist) Navajo/Athabaskan blanket. The range and combination of colors in this 1870s blanket give it a Rio Grande Spanish "feel," although the terraced motifs are Navajo. It was woven on an upright loom, and its continuous warps and lazy lines mark it as Navajo work. [1870-1880, purchased from Old Santa Fe Trading Post, 1940, 751/2" x 57" (192x145 cm).]
