Zuni Polychrome Rainbird Olla, c.1915
Here is a large attractive olla made at Zuni around 1915. This piece is traditionally made and fired. It features a beautiful polychrome variant of the classic rain bird design. Based on the design the potter can be identified as Lawsaiyatesta, a.k.a. Mrs. Lonkeena (See Lamnon's Pottery of Zuni Pueblo p.438). It measures 10 1/2" high by 11" in diameter and is in excellent original condition.
