Germantown Pictorial

circa 1890s

This unique weaving is a classic example of the late 19th century Germantown period of Navajo weaving.  The material is 4 ply Germantown yarn that was spun and dyed in the mills of Germantown Pennsylvania.  The yarn was used by the Navajo weavers from the late 1870's to around 1905.  The design at one end is very different from the rest of the rug suggesting that maybe it was started by one weaver and finished by another.  

Size:  37" x  58"

Condition:  Excellent
