Rug Of The Week - Two Greyhills by Delorcita Francis

by John Aldrich

This week we are featuring a Two Greyhills rug by Delorcita Francis. Delorcita is best known for her beautiful Teec Nos Pos rugs, and we featured two of them in a previous post. But she is a versatile weaver working in many different styles. For some reason our weavers don't send us many Greyhills rugs, so it's always a pleasure to add one to the catalog.

This rug exhibits all the elements of the classic Greyhills style but is not overly elaborate. Although you could never call one of these rugs "simple", this is as straightforward a Greyhills rug as you might hope to find. Would it be an elegant addition to your wall?

The rug is number 7562 in our catalog. It measures 35" x 52". The size, beauty, and execution of the rug easily justify the price of $950.

Here is Delorcita at our recent rug show where is is holding  Klagetoh pattern which sold at the show and is not in our current catalog.

To see more rugs, new and old, visit the Rug Catalog.

See this 2010 post for more information about the rug catalog.

Notes: Every effort has been made to photograph and present the rugs with as accurate rendition of color as possible. It's not possible, however, to be certain that your computer won't show some variance. Where two prices are listed in the catalog, the higher represents what the weaver hopes to receive and the lower, the minimum she will accept. As has always been the case at ANE all the proceeds of every rug sale go entirely to the weaver. Prices are set by the weaver, and since there is no "middleman" they are typically very reasonable.
