Did you end up getting those rugs or others for your new place, Gus? I really liked the top one.
The one you got is really nice imo. I look forward to seeing pics when the furniture is all there.
Any specific user at Etsy to look into?Did you end up getting those rugs or others for your new place, Gus? I really liked the top one. We've gotten some small ones from Etsy, shipped directly from the countries where they were made. So many to choose from, and you can often bargain:View attachment 1285334View attachment 1285337
It's very difficult to determine age without close inspection by an expert. I've seen many vintage Navajo rugs but have never seen this mix of patterns or colors. It does have the "lazy lines" in the weave which are an indication of the authentic Navajo weaving technique. If this is roughly 30" or so, this might be a saddle blanket woven for special occasions due to the bright colors (rugs from the 1920's and later tend to have borders). If it iss larger, it might be an early blanket. Early weavings were blankets (late 1800's) and had no borders.To estimate value and age, it would require closer, detailed photos of the weave and condition of the edges, then a flat shot showing how it lays and a list of its dimensions.View attachment 1394358
Anyone know anything about Navajo rugs? Inherited this one and it’s been in my garage for 20 years. Before I use it, trying to figure out if it is worth it to have an appraisal.
Did online research and it appears to be authentic, but can’t seem to figure out the age.
