We have been lucky here in the central California. We’ve had one of the longest springs I can remember. So far only six days over 100 degrees in June.
I have two great rugs to feature this month.
# 1090 is a very large JB Moore Crystal Trading Post Navajo rug. Circa 1900, it is 95″ x 108″. A large Maltese Cross is in the center and a whirling log in each corner. It is in excellent condition. Very well woven and will make a great floor rug. Marked down to 7,000.
# 998 is a revival wearing blanket circa 1930. It is 57″ x 78″. This very tightly woven blanket is made of processed wool. Marked down to $3,000.
Four rugs have been added to the collection.
