Exceptional Early Yellowware Oval Dish by Nampeyo, c.1895-1900

This early example of Nampeyo’s yellowware dates to 1895-1900. This unusual oval dish has both a red rim as well as red used as an outline of the top of the design. While the design is a classic abstracted avian motif, with four “rain drops” underneath, this composition is uniquely Nampeyo’s. The dish shows her learning to paint in the Sikyatki Revival style itself, and not merely copying Sikyatki designs. The bowl measures 1” height, 6 ¼” width, and 7 ¾” length, and is in excellent, original condition.
