Hopi-Tewa White-Slipped Seed Jar by Nampeyo, c.1910

This charming seed jar by Hopi-Tewa master potter Nampeyo (1856-1942) dates to 1910, during the mature period of her career. The jar is a classic example of the seed jar form she developed over her long career and is well-molded. The design is a variation of her eagle tail design. Rather than the eagle tail feathers dropping down from her two central squares, the feathers connect to the beaks/talons and form two swirls around the jar. The design has great movement and fits the jar well. The jar measures 3" height and 5 1/2" diameter, and is in excellent, original condition with no repair. This is a classic and graceful example of Nampeyo's work in both form and design, and fired well.
