#116: First Place First Phase
More Navajo, not a big deal. Thanks to Jeff for passing along this exceptional clip.
Formerly the most valuable appraisal to ever appear on the U.S. broadcast of the Antiques Roadshow, but knocked into 2nd place in January 2009, and then into 3rd place in January 2010.
For still more information on weavings and especially the First Phase of the Navajo craft, try the wonderful Navaho Weaving: Its Technic and History, first published in 1934. (Thanks to TT for gifting me my very special old edition, endearingly laden with typos.)
