A simply stunning 1890's 3rd phase Chief's Blanket woven for the Ganado Trading Post during Lorenzo Hubble's tenure there. This pristine example of Dineh weaving is a copy made from Hubble's water color sample cards that one may still see in the historic trading post to this day. This piece features "Spiderwoman" four directional crosses in the traditional natural brown wool striped pattern so common to these early wearing blankets. A classic pattern, one may see these being worn by the Navajo in early turn of the century photographs. The condition of the blanket is virtually pristine with no discernible damage, moth holes, stains or tears to edges. Purchased as family piece, the owner worked for Hubble as a young man during the flu epidemic of 1918. T. Paddila.
