Navajo Crystal Rug - C3781Between release of his 1903 catalog and his 1911 catalog, J. B. Moore published loose leaf sheets of Navajo rugs that could be purchased. The first one of the loose leafs was labeled Plate IX and it was an image of a Storm Pattern rug which Moore stated "Special Design and Weave by 'Dug-gau-eth-lun bi Dazhie.'"   When he published his 1911 catalog, he replaced the Storm Pattern rug in the loose leaf sheet with a new design that he labeled Plate XXVIII and it was being made by the same weaver.
