Historic Traditional San Juan Red-on-tan Pottery Bowl [SOLD]
For those of you who like small vessels, this is a must! This is the nicest small historic San Juan Pueblo red pottery bowl we've ever seen. Its shape is faithfully reproduced from a large bowl down to this smaller size. It probably dates to circa 1900-1920 period.
It is the traditional San Juan Red-on-tan classification, which has been made for centuries. In this case, the red slip is on the rim down about 1-1/4 inches inside the vessel. The remainder of the interior of the bowl and the exterior consists of the natural unslipped tan stone-polished clay. A fluted rim and a beautiful fire cloud serve as the vessel's only decoration.
Condition: this Historic Traditional San Juan Red-on-tan Pottery Bowl is in very good condition for vessel of this vintage. The previous owner had a small rim chip professionally restored.
