An Antique Navajo Chief Blanket

$ 12,500
  • Description
    Sometimes categorized as the fourth-phase chief blanket, this wonderful piece of Navajo textile art is well preserved and can be dated to 1890-1910. Woven with hand-spun natural yarns in white and black, and possibly unraveled bayeta yarns, this blanket shows the typical pattern that is considered the fourth-phase, in which the bold, oversized diamonds connect vertically and visually dominate the field, while the strips appear receding from the view. The nine diamonds form three column with serrated steps, adding an intriguing visual to this piece.
    Subtle shade variations in yarn and lazy lines are found in many area of the piece. One side is slightly sun-faded but evenly so as shown in detail photos. Tassels at the corner largely remains intact.
    Reference: For s similar blanket, see Collecting The Weaver's Art: the William Clafin Collection of Southwestern Textiles, Laurie D. Webster. Page 86.
