There were probably more bowls made in New Mexico Pueblos than there were jars.  Very large bowls, called dough bowls,  were used for preparing bread dough; medium-sizes ones were used for preparation of tortilla dough, serving food at the table or for storage and even overturned as a lid for covering jars; the smallest bowls were used for daily meals.  This bowl is a medium-size one, and that shows no wear from use.  It was probably purchased when made and was probably made in the 1930s or so.  The rim of the bowl rises up from a slight indention just below.  The design is a sinusoidal wave encircling the vessel.  Condition:  the bowl is sturdy and strong with some minor abrasion of the exterior design  Provenance: from the collection of Katherine H.
