Bowls traditionally have served many functions—individual food consumption, larger food serving bowls, bowls for making bread and bowls for ceremonial functions.  Another use for bowls, often overlooked, is as lids for jars. Bowls turned upside down can be stored over the opening of a large jar, serving the functions of storage of the bowl and a lid for a jar.  That perhaps explains somewhat why bowls are decorated on the exterior.

This small bowl shows no wear patterns so was most likely made as a souvenir item to be sold.  It is decorated on the interior and exterior. Most bowls have a black bottom but the white slip on this one covers the entire exterior, including the bottom.  The bowl is decorated simply and elegantly with traditional Zuni designs.


Condition: this Zuni Pueblo Very Small Pottery Bowl is in excellent condition

Provenance: from the extensive collection of a Colorado resident

Reference: The Pottery of Zuni Pueblo by Dwight P. Lanmon and Francis H. Harlow
