Antique Navajo rug, handwoven in the Southwest US, during the first quarter of the 20th century.
This powerful rug features a totemic corn stalk on a vast gray field. The gray color is created by mixing different strands of undyed wool. The whole is framed by eye catching zigzag borders in black and white.
In very good condition, some unraveling of the corners and bottom right, as pictured. Flatwoven, with a light handle.
