Hopi Black on Red Seed Jar by Nampeyo, c.1905 new
Nampeyo made this black on red seed jar during her Grand Canyon period, about 1905. In the summers of 1905 and 1907, the Fred Harvey Company sponsored Nampeyo at their Hopi House at the Grand Canyon, where she sold pottery and demonstrated pottery-making. The jar has a classic Sikyatki Revival design of faces with eyes and a beak, with stippled texturing. This excellent example of Nampeyo's seed jar form is well-molded, and well-fired. The jar measures 3" height and 5 3/4" diameter, and is in excellent, original condition.
