This special collection of historic Navajo weavings was previously on display for over twenty years at a leading Chicago banking institution.  It was the centerpiece of a much larger art collection at the bank.  Each piece was carefully mounted and displayed.  Time however caused the exposed side of many weavings to gently fade, resulting in a distinctive A/B side to many of them.  The A side is as vibrant as the day the weaving left the loom.  The B side has aged into soft pastels.  We make a special note of those weavings with the A/B side.  The images below picture the A side of each weaving.
The pricing on each of these weavings reflects the overall condition of the piece, and in each case is below the value appraised in 2000.
