Hopi Polychrome Canteen, c.1905

This Hopi polychrome canteen uses a Nampeyo family design, and was made by Nampeyo herself or a member of the family around 1905. The design is an early version of the eagle tail design, which Nampeyo later perfected, with eagle tail feathers dropping down. A dance sash sits at the base of the design. The canteen fired well, expressing the full tonality from ivory to burnt orange that traditionally-fired Hopi yellowware pottery is known for. The canteen measures 4 ½” height and 4” diameter, and is in excellent, original condition, with some wear typical for its age.
