According to records of the Museum of Northern Arizona, Daisy Hooee Nampeyo signed her pottery with a leaf mark.  Since Daisy was named Tobacco Flower, it is our opinion that the leaf is a tobacco leaf.  According to records of the Museum of Northern Arizona, Daisy Hooee Nampeyo signed her pottery with a leaf mark.  Since Daisy was named Tobacco Flower, it is our opinion that the leaf on this jar is a tobacco leaf.  The leaf illustrated in the museum’s data is not exactly like the one on this jar, however, she is the only one illustrated as having used a leaf mark, so we are making the attribution of this jar to her based on the museum’s data and our assumption that the leaf is that of the tobacco plant.

Daisy Hooee Nampeyo was the granddaughter of Nampeyo of Hano and the daughter of Willie and Annie Healing.  She was born into the Corn Clan of her mother but was named Tobacco Flower after the Tobacco Clan of her father.  The name, Daisy, was given to her by a field nurse at the government agency on First Mesa.  Although she was born at Hano, the family moved to a new village called Polacca at the base of First Mesa.

Condition: very fine condition

Provenance: from a gentleman from Scottsdale, Arizona
