An Unusual Navajo Weaving Comb, 19th C to Early 20th C.

Item: 1194

Origin: Navajo
Date: 19th to early 20th C.

Media: Wood – Juniper?

Dimensions: 6.5″ long, 2.75″ wide, 1.2″ deep

Description: Here is a highly unusual weaving comb.  The shape has been made to fit the hand particularly well, especially the right hand (I’m left handed and it still fits, but not as specifically).  The side cuts at the base to hold a leather strap is another thing I’ve never seen on a comb like this.  The patina is wonderful.  The wood shows good age and is well oiled from both the hands and the sheep’s wool lanolin.

Condition: Excellent condition with scuffs as expected.  There are no cracks and breaks.

Price: $850
