Inside the neck is a support of the type seen with jars that have lids but there are no wear patterns to indicate that this jar ever had a lid.

At first glance, the paint on this historic jar appears to be the type known to have been applied after firing, something that occurred at San Ildefonso and Tesuque Pueblos around 1900.  Paint applied after firing can easily be removed with Acetone, however, the blue and red paint on this jar do not come off with the application of Acetone.  The source of these colors is unknown.

This Southwest Indian Pottery jar is globular in shape with a tall neck.  Inside the neck is a support of the type seen with jars that have lids but there are no wear patterns to indicate that this jar ever had a lid.  All of the design elements, including framing lines were executed in red and blue.  This is a very interesting and unusual jar.

 

Condition: this Small Globular Jar with Unusual Paint Colors is in very good condition
