This is a beautifully carved, formed and polished jar by Betty Tafoya, Lee’s wife and Margaret’s daughter-in-law.  Betty, who was Anglo, took on traditional Tafoya family pottery designs and methods, adding her own subtle artistic touches.  In this case, the accelerating tapering of the mid-body makes this a particularly elegant jar.  The polish is mirror-like and gorgeous.

Condition is excellent.
