We offer a very nice early Native American pottery Water Bottle. My dad and I traded antique fruit jars for Indian Artifacts from across the US with other collectors back in the 1960's and 1970's. This bottle came from the Joseph Golden Collection. Golden lived in southwestern Tennessee. We acquired the bottle around 1973.I don't think that it is Caddo but then I'm way out of my area of expertise. Golden told us that the bottle was found in Mississippi County, Arkansas near the town of Blytheville. I wish I knew more. My guess is that some of you collectors who are from or who are familiar with this area also are familiar with this stype of pottery and possibly may even know the find site? The water bottle is especially cool in that it has 4 stylized red swirls around the body and a red collar.
The bottle is 6 1/2" high and 4 1/2" wide. The neck is 3 5/8 high.
As to condition, we accepted this bottle as in "very good" condition. Upon closer inspection as I was preparing to sell this for my Mom I think the lip may have been repaired. Whomever repaired it did a decent job and I'll be honest... Dad & I never noticed it.
I took several photos of what I feel is a repair... One thing that can't be denied is that this is a standout piece of ancient pottery that will be a center of attraction in any collection. This bottle has been "out of circulation" for about 45 years on display in our collection.The item "Indian Pottery Water Bottle Arkansas Arrowheads Artifact Mississippi Authentic" is in sale since Tuesday, May 17, 2016.
