Crystal JB Moore Plate XV Variant : Historic : GHT 2158

JB Moore and other Traders on the reservation were responsible for helping to define regional styles of weaving.  JB Moore printed a catalog in 1903 and 1911 of rugs in which people back East could purchase.  Over the years, those designs influenced weavers to create weavings using elements of the designs in his catalogs.

Here we have a handsome plate XV variant weaving from the 1903 JB Moore catalog.  This piece was woven thirty years after the catalog was issued.  The weaver used beautiful brown/gray wool for the background and the descending diamonds were woven in black, cream, tan, and red. The artist threw in splashes of bright orange in the border and inner design elements.  This is a great piece!
