Navajo Double Saddle Blanket

Nice Navajo double saddle blanket of natural tan, brown and white, with a border of stylized Maltese crosses. The ends have brown crosses with white outlines while the center has white crosses with brown outlines. Remnants of red corner tassels remain. This was probably made for the cowboy trade - cowboys discovered that the Navajo weavings were the best thing under their saddles to save their horses' backs - and at the same time they helped save the Navajo weaving tradition.
