In his book, Navajo Rugs, Past, Present and Future, that was written in 1963, Gilbert Maxwell wrote that about half of the Navajo weavings made since the regional rug era which began around 1920 could be attributed to a specific weaving area and the rest were just general area Navajo weaving. But thousands of beautiful weavings were woven all over the reservation that really didn't fit into any pattern. Whatever they were called, they were basically ignored by people who have written books and articles on Navajo weaving. This is a perfect example of a General Area weaving in a Geometric style in natural colors with an aniline black and vegetal gold. Measures 26.5 by 30.5 inches.
