Early Zia Small Jar with Birds and Ethnographic Wear, c. 1900

Just a really warm child-sized water jar with fanciful birds nibbling on flowers. Possibly painted by a child, too. Rim wear indicative of water and a small pottery ladle. We generally think of red on orange Zias as 1920s vintage. This jar feels earlier, but what do I know? I do know this is a very sweet jar with an easy naive charm.
