The blankets and rugs woven by the Navajo people of the Four Corners region of the United States are particularly known for their quality standards. Legend states that the ‘Spider-woman,’ a deity worshipped by the Navajo people, was the one who taught them how to weave. The Pueblo Indians, who lived nearby, also helped spread the practice when they moved to the Four Corners area. Many Navajo rugs do not untie when cut or damaged, a quality attributed to the use of a continuous warp. The upcoming Dealers Relief Auction, offered by New Haven Auctions, highlights a Navajo pictorial weaving from 1930 and a traditional Navajo rug with a geometric pattern.
The sale also features a Civil War 34-star flag. The 34th star on the flag was added upon the admission of Kansas into the Union of the United States on January 29th, 1861. It remained in use until 1863. Among the available paintings is a portrait for Lydia C. Bowker by Joseph Goodhue Chandler. Also offered are etchings by Salvator Rosa, a patinated bronze sculpture by Edward Sanford, wooden decorative arts and furniture, folk art, and glassware.
