Acoma Black-on-white Small Pedestal Pitcher with Warm Surface, c. 1910

I love early Acoma small forms including jars, bowls, cups and pitchers. So reflecting the miniaturization of pottery making for turn-of-the-century train depot sales, comes this wonderful small pitcher, only 5″ tall at the handle. It is nicely formed and joyously painted with cross-hatching, parallel lines and negative feathers. Anise touch are the dots decorating the handles. Warm lovely surface from 100 years of handling and exposure to air borne agents such as cigarette smoke, smoke from cooking, dust, etc. A very nice example.

Condition excellent
