San Juan (Ohkay Owingeh) Black-on-Grey (or Tan) Storage Jar, c. 1890


Beautifully formed, wide-mouth jar, exceptionally stone polished. What stands out is one side where the firing yielded a tan underbody, great fire clouds and beautiful red highlights. Unusual and particularly fine example.

Size 11″ tall x 12.5″ wide
Condition One restored crack, otherwise exceptional
Provenance A Colorado collection
