This historic Acoma Polychrome pottery bowl has a twisted pottery handle and a pair of bird heads.  Presumably the bowl represents the body of the bird.  One of the twisted handles is white and the other one orange.  The body of the bowl features geometric designs in dark brown pigment with highlights in orange, outlined in brown.  In one of the areas of white slip is written Grants New Mexico.  Grants is the closest town to Acoma and Laguna Pueblos and the purchaser may have purchased this in Grants and wrote the name on the jar as a reminder.  


Condition: very good condition with a small chip on the beak of one of the birds.

Provenance: this Historic Acoma Pueblo Double Headed Bird Pottery Bowl is from the estate of Edythe L. Gozdiskowski
