It is not unusual for early- to mid-20th century pottery not to have the name of the potter included.  Many Acoma Pueblo potters did not sign their work until after the 1950s.  Sometimes it is possible to take a stab at which potter made a particular item but most often it is no more than a guess.

 

Potter Unknown | Acoma Pueblo | Southwest Indian Pottery | Contemporary | signature

This Acoma polychrome candle holder is simply signed Acoma, N. Mex. on the underside.  It has actually been used for its intended purpose as there is a snub of a candle in the holder. 

 

Condition: very good condition

Provenance: from a collection of a family in New Mexico
