Hopi Polychrome Jar with Cloud and Rain Designs, c. 1900
Five years ago I created a show called Used; this lovely small jar would’ve fit beautifully. Its very beauty lies in that heavy use as well as the remaining painted designs and rich golden orange surface. Rare and wonderful; warm presence from human touch.
Size 4.5” tall by 7.5” wide
Condition Significant water wear/slip loss from native use
Provenance a Washington DC collection
