This early creative Catawba Indian pottery dates from the early 20th century. This is likely attributed to the Harris family. It is a really balanced, simple eye-appealing form in a double bird effigy bowl, portraying two birds standing on the bowls rim, almost ready to sip from the bowl of life. The birds general form reveals a beak, and their wings. The early orange clay body is more typical of the first couple decades of the 20th century for most Catawba potters i.The clay pits being primarily used at that time were yielding orange/red clays. The piece is pit-fired, thus the black patches formed when the piece hardened in the pit fire. The bowl stands 3.5 in height by 2.25 max width.
