Navajo Moki Serape: Circa 1870s: 76 1/2″ X 53 1/2″: BEW 303 OUT ON APPROVAL

Description

This Navajo Moki Serape is just back from cleaning and is in mint condition. This Navajo weaving has a really good reflective quality to the wool, especially the Indigo. This is a great example because it’s a Navajo Serape pattern on a Moki blanket and these are really hard to find. The Navajo started to add brown to their blankets somewhere in the 1860s. Blankets such as this one with the blue and brown stripes were made by the Navajos for the blanket market that likely included the Hopi, Zuni and the other Pueblos.
