J.B. Moore Old Style Crystal Storm Pattern Variant Pictorial (C. 1910-1915)
This rare J.B. Moore Old Style Crystal weaving dates to the period when Moore was selling rugs through his catalog and actively working with the weavers in the area of Crystal, New Mexico to develop what we now know as the Storm Pattern rug. This early pictorial shows its clear relationship to the classic Storm geometry, but is uniquely woven with Ye’i, horny toad and bird pictorial elements. This rare piece is in good condition, but should be considered as a wall display due to age and rarity. It is woven from handcarded and handspun churro yarns. The dyed yarns appear to have been colored with aniline dyes.
Please remember that there is a wide variation in the way monitors render color. We will be glad to mail you detailed photographs, and we will discuss approval/refund terms for your purchase. We understand that a rug is a major purchase, and we are committed to your satisfaction.
