This is a Rare & Fantastic Estate Fresh pair of old Candle Holders from a longtime collector of Southwest & Native American Pottery Art & Jewelry out of Los Alamos. This woman's husband worked at the labs and was part of the group that worked on the Atomic Bomb.
He was busy, so she collected what she liked. This lot is for a RARE PAIR OF SANTA CLARA or SAN ILDEFONSO, I believe, NATIVE AMERICAN BLACK POTTERY MINI TREE CANDLESTICKS.
Not sure what else to call them as these are terribly scarce, Mini Tree or Triple Tree as they are on a pedestal base. Sadly, they are unsigned, so I do not know for sure if these are San Ildefonso or Santa Clara Blackware pottery or possibly somewhere else. I just know they are amazing and certainly rare.
They are in Pristine condition as described above, each standing approx 7.5. 4.75 across the 3 candle holes.
Just stunning examples of Southwest Blackware no matter where they are from, I just wish I knew.
