This hand-woven rug is from the estate of a very high-end Los Angeles collector of Native American crafts and artwork.

This consigned item - a Storm Pattern Navajo rug - is in excellent condition with no holes, stains, or defects of any kind.  Very tight weave with beautiful multi-colored design.  When found in the estate, this item was tagged "Navajo Storm Pattern, Rebecca, Ganado."  I do no know who Rebecca is, but it could possibly be Rebecca Paul, but this has not been confirmed.  Ganado region is located in Arizona.

Measures approximately 26.5" x 39.8".  An incredible Native American work of art.  Absolutely wonderful!

Early 1900's Antique German/Bavarian 4/4 Violin

This is a wonderful estate find.  When dug up in the attic, it was in solid condition, but I was in the dark as to age and background.  I took this to one of Southern California's most respected violin makers near the Claremont Colleges for some information and to get this back to playing condition.

After approximately $350 of refurbishing, and a new case, this violin and bow were brought back to life.  It plays beautifully and looks great.  The information I received was that this is a quality violin with corner blocks, and was made in the late 19th or early 20th century for mass appeal.  This comes from southern Germany region, probably Bavaria, (bow is not a match and is a bit shorter than a standard full-size bow).  In addition, they categorized this violin as a 4/4, but it is slightly smaller than a 4/4, but it is NOT a 3/4.

The violin shop determined that the violin's current value is approximately $2000.

Again, this has been completely refurbished with new strings, saddle, tailpiece, soundpost and restringing of bow.

Violin, bow, and new padded case (tags still attached).
