Warm and Wonderful Zia Polychrome Olla with Meandering Vine, c. 1900

$9,500.00

This is another very fine example of a Zia water jar created for pueblo home use. The high rounded shoulder is indicative of an earlier piece along with the heavy use as a water jar and the distinctive red band at the top of the underbody. The somewhat cross-hatched motif is avian like; in fact there is a sense of abstracted birds in flight throughout the mid body. A light airy touch is the meandering vine with leaves around the neck. The rim wear and surface patina render this jar a sheer delight.
