Major Acoma Polychrome Large Jar from Gallegos Collection Book, c. 1910

With 4 design fields of prehistoric origin and gorgeous surface wear from use, this jar is a gem. There is a deep inner rim red band descending to jar's flexure and incredible inner neck and rim finger impressions from final stages of jar's formation. The design is complex, modern, and beautifully executed. No restoration. Inside and out a near perfect pueblo ceramic by a master potter whose name is lost to history, but her kindness in sharing her love and skill lives on.
