Navajo Double Saddle Blanket
Nice Navajo double open field saddle blanket of onion , in superb used condition, with soft red, onion brown, natural grey brown and white. Open field with a keyed border on one end, and an open field with a serrated border, and man in the maze design elements on the other end - the blanket could have two differing looks depending upon which side was up when folded. 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. Circa 1890 measures 50" x 31"
Size: 48" x 32"
Location/Origin: Arizona, Navajo, New Mexico, Southwest
