A Late Classic Striped Serape with a White Field and Stripes of Manchester Bayeta, Navajo, circa 1865 - 1870.

The serape measures 48 inches wide by 80 inches long, as woven. Condition is excellent with less than 1% restoration. Colors are original and full.

The reds are raveled bayeta dyed with cochineal; the browns and the whites are undyed handspun. The presence of a two-ply wool warp suggests that this serape was woven by a Navajo women living in a Spanish household.
