San Juan Black-on-Grey Water Jar with Beautiful Red Highlights and Subtle Nodules, c. 1880’s

$1,850.00

I love this jar; its beauty is all in its subtleties. It has a very subtle pie crust rim, a subtle and lovely rainbow band at the base of the neck, beautiful stone polish, great color separation between the upper body black and the fire clouded base. It is also beautifully formed with stunning and dramatic red highlights. A wonderful old jar.

Condition very good with a 2″ area of slip loss in the neck and 2 minor rim chips; no restoration
Provenance a San Juan family
