Tularosa Black-on-white Olla, Horsecamp Ruin
This impressive, 10 " tall, 14 " wide Tularosa Black-on-White olla (GL655) was found at the Horsecamp Ruin near Quemado, New Mexico. Attributed to the Anasazi group, and dating c.1100-1250AD, it is from the collection of the late Gene Lang of Denver. Approximately 15% of this large olla has been restored (much in the unpainted base). Originally from the Hatley collection, the pot has been in Denver for decades. The black and white photo does not show the 30%+ area of red-brown blush that occurred at firing. Note the two finger holes in bottom and the painted bird tracks around neck. This large prehistoric jar comes with a small display card, a biographical sketch about Lang, a release certificate stating that the pot is legal to own, and a map of New Mexico highlighting the area in which it was found.
