Tiny and Unusual Santa Clara Bear Paw Plate, c. 1950’s

Just a cute tiny tourist bear paw plate, stone polished on both sides to a glass-like sheen. I've never seen one quite like it. Since the Clark's had work by Pablita Chaveria in their collection, this piece could possibly be by her. Another tourist item for no particular purpose than beauty and fun.

Condition excellent
Provenance collection of Annette and Merle Clark, caretakers at Pecos National Monument 1950-1956 and their close friends Sally and Bill Lippincott who owned Wide Ruins Trading Post from 1941-1945
