Native American Acoma, Acomita Design Polychrome Pottery Water Jar/Olla- Price Upon Request
Native American Acomita Design, Acoma poly chrome water jar, circa 1890. Low shoulder, good patina. The featured design elements are triangular checkerboards surrounding the exterior just below the mid-body - a feature more commonly found on Acomita ware. On the exterior of the base there is a type of glyph that very occasionally seen on Acoma jars, perhaps belonging to a particular family of potters, or identifying the jar for a particular use? Overall, this jar speaks to the spirit and aesthetic of pueblo life, and not the commercialism that loomed just around the corner. Dimensions: 9.5" h. x 11" w. Condition: Excellent condition for its age and use.
