Hopi Polychrome Eagle Tail Jar by Nampeyo, c.1910 new
Nampeyo (1856-1942) made this uniquely-shaped seed jar around 1910. The form shows strong influence from American art pottery. The jar’s form, with its bulging top and narrow bottom, perfectly complements Nampeyo’s classic eagle tail design with talons and feathers dropping down. The mouth of the jar is symmetrically framed by a square, another Nampeyo hallmark. The jar measures 4 ¾” height and 5 ¼” diameter, and is in excellent, original condition.
