4-1/4" x 3" wide X 4 tall (to top of handle). I'm not an experienced collector so I'm not sure how to describe the condition of this piece - so PLEASE ask any questions. There is some wear to the surface in various spots, abrasions. It feels like there's a small chip out of the bottom corner of the lid.
There is also a "faded" area in the design on one end (it sort of looks like a reflection in the first couple of photos so I wanted to point it out). There is some sort of residue in the base of the box (see 10th pic).
See high-res photos for details. This piece belonged to my parents, but I have no idea how long they owned it.They began making trips to the Southwest in the 1940s. I can barely make out part of "Ildefonso" in faint chalk or white pencil on the inside of the lid. I found references to a "Pascualita" online, but nothing substantial; and a pottery expert told me he'd heard of that name as a San Ildefonso artisan but he didn't know to which family she belongs/ed.
I have more views of it, which I can message to anyone interested - I just ran out of "slots" for photos in the listing. Apologies for the ID slips appearing in some of the photos - it's the only way I can keep track of the items I have to photograph & list. Happy to take more photos if desired. I will be adding more Native American pieces each week.
