Acoma New Mexico on the bottom of this bowl.This is a delightful Acoma Pueblo pottery tourist souvenir. It is a pottery bowl with two bird heads positioned between two twisted clay handles. The small size helps indicate that such pottery items had no utilitarian function in a pueblo household but were easy sales to visiting tourists and a good source of income for the potter. The smaller size helped a tourist transport it home, oftentimes across the country via the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. Most of these bowls were made with a single handle arched over the bowl, but the unidentified pueblo 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
