Crystal JB Moore variant Plate XXVII : Historic : GHT 2185

JB Moore recognized the unique skill of the Navajo weaver and he and other Trading Post owners were responsible for the creation of regional styles of weaving. 

JB Moore took the promotion of Navajo weaving a step farther than most and created a catalog in 1903 and 1911 of examples of weavings that could be purchased by the folks in the East.  

Weavers would use these catalog images as guidelines in their weavings and often would incorporate bits or parts of his catalog plate images when creating their own.  When we see selected parts of a plate used and not the whole plate, the piece is recognized as a "variant".

This is a variant.  Beautifully woven and easily recognized as a variant of Plate 27, this piece would be a great treasure to add to nearly any home or office.
