Early Navajo Chief's Rug
This excellent textile features design elements from both 2nd and 3rd phase Chief's Blankets. It appears to be an early Red Mesa textile with white outlining around the saltillo diamonds. I would date it c.1910-1920. Freshly washed, it measures 51" x 75". over six feet by four feet. The wool is homespun, the blue appears to be indigo. The textile is in excellent condition.
