Early Prehistoric INDIAN Pottery Clay POTS Found in North WEST IOWA in the 1970s. Both are not perfect and in typical as found condition.
The smaller one has the 4 feet or legs broken off almost flush to the bottom, no cracks but has a large chunk missing or eroded off the side and one handle broken off. The larger one was found broken in several pieces and was eventually pieced back together, it was deemed important enough to be semi-restored at that time, both looped handles are intact on this one. No markings that I can see can be found on either piece, so unsure of true origin. The smaller pot is about 3 inches tall, about 3-1/2 inches in diameter.
The larger pot is about 3-1/2 inches tall and about 4 inches in diameter. The smaller pot has a very interesting effigy handle with a distinct animal face on it which look kind of like a bear with a long snout - see photos, its pretty cool looking!! I have been told these are quite possibly Mill Creek pieces but I don't know for sure. Color is a dark blackish brown on the smaller pot, the larger handled pot is kind of an off white somewhat reddish or pinkish color. Since they were found together in the same field, I would like to keep them together and just sell them as a pair.The item "Early Prehistoric INDIAN Pottery Clay POTS Found in North WEST IOWA in the 1970s" is in sale since Thursday, May 19, 2016.
