Acoma New Mexico on the bottom of this bowl.This is a charming Acoma Pueblo tourist pottery souvenir.  It is a bowl with two bird heads positioned between two twisted clay handles.  Such items had no function in a pueblo household but were easy sales to visiting tourists and a good source of income for the potter.  Most of these bowls were made with a single handle arched over the bowl, but the potter took extra care here by adding two handles.


Condition: this Acoma Pueblo Small Pottery Bowl with Bird Heads and Twisted Handles is in very good condition

Provenance: from the estate of Edythe L. Gozdiskowski
