Navajo Twill Saddle Blanket
Gorgeous variegated brilliant orange Navajo blanket with a center double diamond design. Twill weave is complicated, but was used on saddle blankets and Navajo saddle cinches because it was thicker and more durable. To achieve a complex design like this one took a skilled weaver. In excellent condition. Heavy and thick with colors that have remained vibrant and clear. Measures 34" x 60". Circa 1900.
