The Santa Clara Pueblo Black-on-Black Pottery Bowl with Handles is very typical of those made in the mid-twentieth century for sale to tourists and collectors who often purchased them for use as candy dishes or something similar.  This one does not appear to have been used.

The interior designed with matte paint either as the design or as the outline for the design in the polished area.  The exterior is stone polished. The edges of the bowl have twisted handles.

Unfortunately we are not sure of the artisan who made this wonderful bowl.  It is signed in pencil, Juanita, but we do not know a potter from Santa Clara Pueblo by the name of Juanita.  It is possible that we are mis-reading the name.  


Condition: very good condition with no evidence of prior use

Provenance: from the collection of a family from Albuquerque
