A beautiful rug is up for auction on the first day at Lot 1114 in the online catalog. This is a Navajo serrated diamond textile rug which will look stunning in any collection. The 4 cornered tassels are intact, and it has muted earth tones, gorgeous colors, tight weave, and measures 36” L by 27” W. There is a pastel bird motif and this will be a great value for the wining bidder.

Always popular kachina dolls are spread throughout the catalog. A great value piece is Lot 1132. There are three carved wooden cradleboard kachina dalls in this lot, and sure to put a smile on bidder’s faces. The longest one measures 8 inches by 4 inches and is embellished with feathers. Photos of these lovely little dolls are available on iCollector.com and this is a great value piece for the collector as it should sell for around $100.

Arguably the best textile rug in the sale is listed in day 2 on March 15th. At Lot 1450 is a 1930’s Navajo red granado traditional textile rug. There is no bleeding, some selvage damage, and some lighting rods in the corners. As such, it is a beautiful piece and will be in high demand during the auction. Pre-sale estimates feel this could go for as high as $1500 due to the beauty and quality.
