Acoma Polychrome Canteen, c.1900 updated
Fifty miles West of Albuquerque and near Enchanted Mesa is the historic Acoma pueblo. Acoma potters are blessed with one of the finest natural clay sources and when it is mixed with a crushed potsherd temper it produces a very thin walled and light weight pottery. This thin walled construction combined with polychrome parrot, geometric, and floral designs has attracted collectors for more than a hundred years and we expect at least a hundred more.
