Clearly signed by Fannie, this large seed jar features the well known eagle tail feather drop with talons.
The mouth is squared off with a red polished clay, and the ceramic is perfectly molded, well painted, and well fired. An example example of Nampeyo's designs being passed down to her daughter Fannie to continue the Sikyatki Revival Art Movement founded by Nampeyo in the 1880s.

This jar measures 10.5" diameter by 7" height and is in excellent condition. Provenance: Seymour and Harriet Koenig collection, New York
