Basketry | Beadwork | Blankets, Rugs & Textiles | Pottery | Jewelry | Northwest Coast

One of Moran’s proudest achievements was bringing a special First Phase Chief’s blanket to market, setting a world record for a Navajo textile at auction that still stands to this day. Moran’s Art of the American West is the place to find the best in American Indian basketry, pottery, weaving, and design created by Native artists throughout the North American continent.

Selections can also be found in Moran’s Art of the American West, Native Art + Design, and California Living auctions held throughout the year.
