It is known as White Mountain Red Ware with a beautiful handle and oval bottom. The red slip covers the entire exterior and goes down about 1 on the interior of the neck.
The designs on the pitcher tell a a very detailed story. On the neck are symbols which are called earth land lines and the symbols (the black enclosed area) which stand for mountains. On the bowl part you have the symbols for wind and rain with the black swirl joining the rain swirl at a point where every thing comes together for the common good as the eyes watch over. Just a wonderful story of water coming down from the mountains to a place where all could use it.
Makes perfect sense as the pueblo is located near the Puerco River whose flat lands were farmed by the Puerco people. There is the expected use wear and design fading on one side--from burial--and excellent design depth on the other. The handle is 4" long and 1 1/4" wide with a nice design on it and near the rim. The rim is 4 in diameter. The pitcher is 100% intact with some minor repair on the interior of the rim.
