Crystal JB Moore Plate XXVII Transitional : Historic : GHT 882
In 1911 JB Moore published a catalog featuring rugs that could be purchased. This weaving was derived from plate XII (see images) and original sold for $1 per square foot, or approximately $35, a pretty expensive piece in those days.
The red was dyed, and the rest was woven using naturally colored native wool which had been hand-carded and hand-spun.
Originally seen as a result of JB Moore's influence at the Crystal Trading post, this "quincunx design (an arrangement of five objects with four at the corners of a square or rectangle and the fifth at its center) was woven by just one family for a while. The Storm pattern had one appearance in his 1903 catalog (#9) and two in the 1911 catalog (#27 & #28) it was very well received. Later, the Storm Pattern became a regionally recognized style from the Tuba (western area) of the reservation.
