North America, Native American, Arizona, Phoenix, Maricopa Reservation, ca. early 20th century CE. An attractive handmade pottery jar displaying a concave, circular base, a bulbous body, a dramatically sloped shoulder, a tapered neck, and an annular rim. Boasting a lustrous sienna slip, the lovely vessel has been adorned with a black-painted design that divides the body of the piece vertically into five sections, each separated by a pair of vertical striations flanking an undulating line. All of the sections feature a single figure, with four exhibiting quadrupeds and one showcasing an anthropomorphic figure. The slanted shoulder is embellished by a ring of running zigzag motifs flanked by a linear striation along the edge of the shoulder and another at the base of the neck. A lovely black stripe adorns the top of the rim. Please note that the Lucite stand is for photography purposes only. Size: 3.375" in diameter x 2.75" H (8.6 cm x 7 cm)
Provenance: private Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA collection; ex-Dr. David Harner collection, Springdale, Arkansas, USA, acquired between the 1950s and 1960s
