$12,500.00

By 1935, pueblo pottery matriarch Margaret Tafoya was already well-known. Besides her glorious black storage jars, her red-ware pieces are among the most sought-after and her plates are rarities. From a New Mexico family comes this brilliant red large plate, carved with water, cloud and kiva step devices. It has been in the same family since the coal miner father used to trek to Santa Clara to buy from Margaret. Wonderful and rare.
