1. A Navajo eye dazzler rug, hand-spun wool yarn, circa mid-20th century. An old retail tag identifies this piece as a Tuba City double saddle blanket from the 1930s, though that appears to be spurious. The design is a cream ground with a central belted diamond of black, red, and gold. Measures 30 1/2" x 49".

2. A Navajo single saddle blanket, hand-spun wool yarn, circa 1900s-1920s, having an open gray ground with red designs at each corner and a black/ dark brown border. 26" x 35".


The eye dazzler shows a little scattered wear, with one small hole near the corner of the cream ground. The smaller single saddle blanket has color run to the red dye, and several small holes through the center.
