This is a beautiful antique Acoma pot made by an Acoma American Indian many years ago. I have been collecting artifacts since I was a young girl living just outside of Mesa Verde. The designs and colors are vivid and classic Acoma. The pot has a "V" crack extending down from the rim about 3 1/2" (see photo) in one place and then a short ways in the adjoining "V line. This second smaller crack may have been partway filled with glue, but I'm not sure.Around on another part of the rim, there is a much smaller and less substantial crack that extends maybe an inch down. Inside there is a surface crack that is circular. On the surface there are pits and some imperfections. None of the "damage" detracts from the beauty of this piece of pottery, I believe.
The designs have maintained their pretty browns, orange, and cream. The bottom has the older "dip" of a pot made the first half of the 1900's.Just a wonderful old pot for a collection or by itself on a shelf or table. The pot represents Acoma Pueblo culture along with the artistry of its people. Measures 8 1/2" H X 10 1/2' D, 5 1/2" at rim. What looks like stains inside is really sand -- I didn't want to wipe it out with a damp cloth, worried I might damage the pot. Please let me know if you would like to see additional photos. This pot is more impressive in real life - it has a presence that is not captured in the photos.
