Hopi seed Jar with Terrace design, Nampeyo, c. 1900

This old seed jar by Nampeyo (1856-1942) was made around 1900. Rather than using Sikyatki designs in her painting, here she is using geometric stepped terraces from older Hopi pottery. There's a similar bowl attributed to Nampeyo in Kramer's book, (figure 2.31). This piece is well fired and in original condition without repair.

Measures 8.75" in diameter by 4.5" inches in height. Good solid form and design by Nampeyo.

p506 -- $4250
