Once Known Native American Potter

This beautifully polished, sleek black pottery candle holder comes from Santa Clara Pueblo. The monochrome color is subtle and classy but the carved bear between the two candle holders adds an element of originality and charm.

The inventive piece was made particularly for enthusiasts looking to add some functionality and style to their collection. The bear is perfectly symmetrical between each holder and was made with incredible attention to detail. The precise forming it took to construct the bear indicates a high level of skill and craft.

The bottom of the candle holder is unsigned.

Condition: good condition with minor abrasions

Provenance: this Polished Black Candle Holder with Bear is from a private collection
