Perfect black pottery plate painted with the feather design by Santana and Adam Martinez of San Ildefonso Pueblo.
Traditionally hand built with coils of native clay, stone burnished to a high shine, then reverse slip painted with that feather design.
Pit fired to black, this plate has a gun metal shine!
9" diameter and 1 3/4" deep, very nice shape.
This is a hard one to date, but most of this was collected in the 1960-1980 period.
Like new condition.
Buyer pays $25.00 for shipping and insurance.
