  • Category: Historic
  • Origin: Kewa - Santo Domingo Pueblo
  • Medium: clay, pigments
  • Size: 9-3/4" tall x 10-1/2" diameter
  • Item # C3310Q
  • Price: $2,200.00

Special Value Offer: We have been authorized to offer this at a 25% price reduction from the original price of $2950 to a new price of $2200.

This is a very traditional  Kewa (Santo Domingo) Pueblo polychrome olla, circa 1930, with traditional rag-wiped bentonite slip, black rim around the top, and black double framing lines just under the rim, another pair just above the red underbody, and a third pair as part of the main body decoration.  Triple framing lines separate the main body from the shoulder decoration.  All the framing lines incorporate ceremonial breaks.

The main body is decorated in extremely bold design elements—strong black triangles back to back.  The neck is decorated with cloud designs, which appear to float on the cream background.  The interior neck has been rag wiped with a red slip, and the underbody below the design field has been wiped with a red slip. The underside is concave.

 

Condition: there are no apparent repairs or restoration of any kind.  The jar was thoroughly examined.  A very small pebble popped out of the side wall.  See photo above  Overall, the jar is in excellent condition.

Provenance: from the Jeffrey Trent Collection
