Featured in this lot is this Navajo Two Grey Hills trading post rug circa 1930's. The rug shows a wonderfully and professionally hand woven construction with a black border and grey field with a large multi layered medallion in the center with colors such as reddish brown, brown, and off white. This regional style was started in 1914 by George Bloomfield and Ed Davis at the Toadlena and Two Grey Hills Trading Post. These Navajo rugs are characterized by natural browns, tan, gray, ivory, white, and black. It is not unusual for the blacks to be oven-dyed. Very rarely small amounts of red, orange or blue are used. The patterns usually have a central diamond motif and intricate patterns. The Two Grey Hills weavings are noted for their high quality. The condition of this rug is good with some bleeding denoting some age to the rug and that it was naturally dyed but otherwise shows good overall condition. The measurements of this rug are 74 1/4" x 39".
