This one is from my personal collection. I paid an arm an a leg for it, here's why.My mom fell in love with the Santa Clara pueblo pottery in the 1960's, when it was still relatively affordable. Mom, being a potter and artist, always appreciated the good stuff and she passed on a bit of that love of art to me. I figure, if you're going to collect pottery, might as well make it the rare, hard to find stuff. I'm sure many of you are familiar with the large Acoma ollas that decorate so many galleries in the Southwestern United States.
For every 100 large bowls, I'll find one antique one like this. And these days, any antique Acoma piece is going to go in the hundred dollar range, upwards into the thousands. This particular piece is devine. Everything about it is worth collecting. I can tell because it's hand coiled.It's also signed, which increases its value to collectors. The unique basket shape with the twisted handle is to die for sweet! And the fine twisty braid trim along the rim is also a nice touch.
It's signed on the bottom by the tribal artist: Made by L. Lucario - Pueblo of Acoma - N.I just love this tribe, they make the best pottery in all of New Mexico. This piece is in great shape, no chips. The design is fine, intricate, and handpainted. The whitewash glaze is typical of the Acoma tribe (as well as their Anasazi predecessors).
Measures 7 inches tall by 5 inches wide. A true piece of First Nation Art. The color scheme is polychrome: White, red, black.An incredible work of art that will continue to appreciate with time. Ships with tracking, fully insured.
