Navajo Yei Rug Woven by Nelly Nez with the Original Fred Harvey Tag

About

This Navajo rug is woven by the Navajo weaver Nelly Nez. It is in remarkable condition and retains the rare Fred Harvey period trading post tag. (Note that Navajo was spelled phonetically Navaho with an h on the tag, typical in the early/mid-20th century) another interesting thing to note about this rug is that several strands of the weaver’s hair have been (accidentally) woven into the carpet making a unique and rare signature. (Shown in the 4th detailed photo) a fine balanced weave and unusual color combination add to the collectability of this rug. Also to be noted is that the rug was purchased in Belgium from an estate of the original owner and has not been on the market since its original purchase at the Fred Harvey trading post back in the mid-20th century.
