On the bottom of the jar, written in ink, is Nellie B. Ferree 1895 Wis.  It is presumed that this was a previous owner.  Nellie B. Ferree was listed in the Minnesota State Census of 1905 as having been born in 1895 in Illinois and was living, in 1905, in Paynesville, Stearns, Minnesota.Small jars, such as this one, were certainly made for the tourist and collector market, as they had no daily function in a pueblo home.  That does not diminish their importance in any way as they are just as historically relevant as something made for daily use in the home.

The design on the body is comprised of large split leaves and the neck design is a continuing rainbow arc.  The jar tilts slightly and has an aged patina.
