Beautiful Vintage San Juan Pueblo REVIVAL Pottery Bowl, marked Taos Pueblo 1939. This came from an estate sale along with several other older pieces.If this is truly from 1939, it was likely made by one of the 7 original potters that were known for the San Juan pottery revival in the 1930's, making this a very important and rare piece. This beautiful pot measures 7" wide x 4" high. From the Kings Gallery and the Salazar Rio del Norte Center. Pottery from San Juan Pueblo (today known as Ohkay Ohwingeh) has long been prized. Before 1900, San Juan pottery was either red-on-tan or polished black and usually not decorated.
A Spanish woman who had married into the pueblo, introduced a new style of pottery. Regina organized a group of potters, including Reyecita A. Trujillo and Tomasita Montoya, whose pots the museum is fortunate to have acquired. The shards had been discovered in the abandoned ancestral village of San Juan, across the Rio Grande from the current pueblo. This new style of pottery consisted mostly of red ware.
The rim and base of the pots are usually polished red with an unslipped, buff-colored band in between. The band is either carved and decorated with red, buff, and white matte paints or incised with a micaceous slip, which is applied before the firing of the pot.
