Old Taos Micaceous Cooking Pot, c. 1910


Today, much micaceous pottery from Taos or Nambe Pueblos is thin and fine, skillfully made by award-winning potters like Lonnie Vigil or Angie Yazzie. However, it all started with old war horses like this well-used Taos jar from the turn of the century. Jars like this have their own beauty; that of love, home and mom! It is decorated by old food residue as well as boiled over piƱon pitch. For a collector who finds ethnographic or pueblo home use and wear to be beautiful (like me!).

Condition well used!
