Large Acoma 3 Color Canteen with Abstracted Triangle, c. 1910


A large example with lovely surface and with what could be an original wooden stopper. The form is pleasingly bulbous and possibly intended for use. The design is expertly painted with 3 vertical design fields and a 4th field of back triangles bordering the main design. The creamy slip accentuates the richly deep orange color painted elements.

Condition: fair with what appears to be a surface crack along the bottom. A well patinated surface (and a very old, possibly original stopper) is possible evidence that the canteen saw use before finding its way into the collector’s world.
