Navajo Rug - C3756FRJ. B. Moore offered his mail order clients options of purchasing a rug with color or black and white only, the choice being the décor in which it was going to be used.  It could be the same pattern rug, as in this variant of Plate XXVII which, in the catalog, is shown in brown, black, red and white.  The one pictured in the catalog has a whirling log symbol in the center of the rug and that element was omitted in this rug.  Other variations to the pattern were made as well.
