This is an excellent Navajo Native American Indian wool rug with an excellent Wide Ruins pattern from Crownpoint Trading Post and woven by Marjorie Nez.

The rug has the original early trading post tag which reads, “No. 3125 Crownpoint Rug Weavers Assn. Crownpoint, New Mexico Weaver: Marjorie Nez Address: Cottonwood Date Comments: Processed Wool.” Crownpoint, New Mexico has been home to a gathering of extraordinary Navajo weavers since the early 1900’s including weavers from the Lorenzo Hubbell Trading Post, Teec Nos Pos Trading Post, Toadlena and Two Grey Hills Trading Post and J.B. Moore Old Crystal Trading Post. In circa 1950-1960’s the Crownpoint Rug Weavers Association founded the Crownpoint Rug Auction which is still in operation today. The rug shows a nice tight weave of processed wool showing colors of black, cream/white, yellow, tan salmon, brown and grey. The rug has nice detail and shows very well-preserved museum quality condition with fine soft churro wool construction.
