Featured in this lot is this Navajo Klagetoh Trading Post rug circa 1930's. The rug features a off white to grey field with stepped and eye dazzler patterns throughout with colors of brown and olive green with a large medallion in the center of the rug with this iconic Kagetoh design. The English translation is “hidden springs.” The Klagetoh weaving is very similar to the Ganado rugs, but with a predominantly gray background instead of the Ganado’s red. Some experts do not consider Klagetoh a specific regional rug, rather it is considered a sub-type of Ganado. The condition of this rug is fair to good with slight wear to the ends of this rug but otherwise in fair to good overall condition. The measurements of this rug are 57" x 29".
