Alternate side view.

This historic pottery bowl was beautifully constructed with a graceful curve from its base to the rim.  The exterior is bathed in wonderful fire clouds.  The interior features an uncluttered precisely executed design that starts with a square in the bottom of the bowl and with appendages from the four corners of the square.  The patina is that of a well-used and lovingly-handled bowl.  The color is warm and rich.  Overall, this historic pottery bowl's design work is very beautiful to look at and its age and condition make it quite collectible.

 

Condition: very good condition with some wear pattern on the interior

Provenance: this Historic Pueblo Pottery - Hopi Polychrome Bowl with In-curving Rim is from a gentleman in Santa Fe
