Maria Martinez, San Ildefonso Pueblo Potter

This beautiful Black-on-black plate by Maria and her daughter-in-law, Santana, has a complete circle of feathers radiating outward from a circle in the center of the plate. Three framing lines encircle the rim. Both artisans’ signatures are on the underside. It is probably circa 1950s. The condition is excellent with only the most minor scratches, much less than one would expect on a piece of this age.
