Early Sikyatki Revival Polacca Jar by Nampeyo
This early jar from the late 1880s has a big presence. The Polacca slip and the design both date this piece to Nampeyo's early Sikyatki Revival period. It shows her starting to widen her jars while adding ancient Hopi designs—here, incorporating feathers, dotting, and hatching. The jar has a large presence and is in original, unrestored condition. It measures 8 1/2" height and 13" diameter. The design matches the design on another piece featured in this sale, the early Sikyatki Revival bowl by Nampeyo (p3237). Provenance: an old Chicago collection.
