Canteen is late 19th early 20th century. I have owned it for over 25 years. And the man I bought it from was Orrel Thompson. He is a collector and owned it for a number of years before that.I have paperwork from him stating that he bought it from a gallery called "Indian Joe's" in western Arizona. It was in their private collection. Orrel referred me to generations in clay.
Polacca polychrome with kachina representation. There is one strikingly similar to this one in the Yale Peabody Museum in New Haven.
The condition of this one is outstanding. It has no cracks or chips. The colors are bright and full.
