Hopi Yellowware Pottery Rattle, c.1900

This Hopi yellowware pottery rattle dates to the late 1890s. The rattle is very likely the work of Nampeyo, although we cannot be definitive. This interesting example of Hopi pottery is a miniaturized version of its larger counterpart: the traditional dance rattle used in the ceremonies at the Hopi villages. The rattle has rain and four directional designs on its sides, and does still rattle when shaken. The piece is well-fired, expressing the beautiful tonality from ivory to burnt orange that pit-fired Hopi yellowware pottery is known for. The rattle measures 5 3/4" height and 2 1/2" diameter, and is in excellent, original condition. Complimentary shipping is included.
