San Ildefonso Long Neck Lamp Base by Maria Martinez and Popovi Da, dated “361”
By March 1961 (“361” carved into base), Maria and Popovi Da were at the height of their artistic power. This large tall vase is evidence. Beautifully large with elegant long neck shows Maria still a great potter. Popovi FA's classic feather design perfectly painted. The piece was made to be a lamp and is so drilled on the bottom. Great example!!
Size 12″ tall by 8.5″ wide
Condition very fine with some very small bubble pops in neck
