This very small Zia Pueblo storage jar could possibly be from the early 20th century.  It is in the shape of a storage jar, but in miniature scale.  The main body design consists of tilted and connected red domino-like rectangles, outlined in black, with some having paired ovals attached to a corner.  Above those elements are black arches.  The base is concave, whereas a true storage jar would have a flat bottom.  The rim is painted black and there is a pair of framing lines below the design area.  A wide matte red band was wiped on under the framing lines and almost covers the entire red area below the design.

 

Condition: very good condition

Provenance: this Very Small Polychrome Zia Pueblo Storage Jar is from a private collection

Reference: The Pottery of Zia Pueblo by Francis H. Harlow and Dwight P. Lanmon, 2003
