Presented today is this fine, vintage Maricopa black on red jar. It is truly ancient, by Maricopa standards, dating from the 1920's, as evidenced by its inverted base. I believe this was used domestically by its creator, and was not a tourist piece.
The picture form is fairly rare and pretty isolated to very early Maricopa pieces. It shows what i believe to be ethnic use. It's in excellent condition, except for some small chipping under the lip of the spout which is further evidence that it was used ethnically. It is 5 inches in diameter and 6 inches tall. It is amazing that it has been so well cared for in its 100 years of existence.
It's a great and important work, and would grace any Southwest collection.
