$2,600.00 

This wonderful turtle effigy measures 6 inches long, 5.5 inches wide and 3 inches tall and exhibits excellent carving and relief. The stone, which has significant wear all over, is volcanic which is used in both the Hohokam and Mimbres cultures; this example I believe is Mimbres (C. 400 - 1200AD). The detail is quite extraordinary with the protruding head, feet, side lines and the crisscross design of the shell on the back. The piece is in mint condition. A very scarce and desirable item.............. ARTIFACT AUTHENTICATION papers from Ben Stermer will be provided attesting to age and origin. (please see photo 6)

REDUCED TO $3,995 FROM $4,400.00 ON JAN 29TH. 

This is a wonderful Mimbres (C. 1100AD) geometric bowl that measures 12 inches wide and about 5.5 inches deep. At the reduced price it is an excellent value! The design is beautifully executed with bold dark designs and the bowl does not have a kill hole. The previous owner purchased the bowl several years back at a Butterfields auction and had it taken apart and re-glued and some of the interior cracks filled for aesthetic purposes. It is assembled from just a few pieces and has no areas of plaster or over-paint.

This is a beautiful and large example of the Mimbres art which is the most desired of all of the Southwestern prehistoric pottery. There are lots of "run of the mill" geometrics out there but ones in this condition and with the superb design are hard to find - they are a very good investment..

SOLD!! 

Mimbres pottery is the most sought after of all American prehistoric pottery due to the sophisticated designs attained in some of their work. This bowl, from the famous Red Ellison collection, measures 9” by 4.5”, exhibits a wonderful bold geometric design in the center (highly unusual) and a male and female deer opposite each other. The artwork, against a white background, is excellent and the balance of design is near perfect.

Condition is excellent. Virtually all Mimbres bowls have a circular “kill hole” in the bottom as in this bowl. The before photos show the bowl as it was originally glued by Red Ellison several decades ago. I recently had the bowl disassembled, glued again in a tight manner, and a couple of tiny spots no bigger than a green pea touched up. THIS BOWL OFFERS AN EXCEPTIONAL VALUE IN TODAY’S MARKET WHICH CLAMORS FOR GREAT PICTURE BOWLS.

A RELEASE AND DISCLOSURE, WITH PICTURE, IS PROVIDED STATING THE CONDITION, APPROXIMATE AGE AND THAT POSSESSING IT IS NOT IN VIOLATION OF ANY FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL LAWS.

SOLD 

In early July of this year a rancher, while digging a trench for a waterline, unearthed this bowl on his private ranch land outside of Duncan Arizona. SOME PEOPLE HAVE ALL THE LUCK!! The Mimbres picture bowl measures 6.75 inches by 3.25 inches and has two perfectly executed opposing images of cranes. The bodies clearly show the design of folded wings and the necks have the food sack as crosshatched lines just below the head. A wonderful geometric design surrounds the birds exhibiting three complete band lines indicating this to be a late Mimbres piece. The bowl has been glued and restored to the extent of about 6% (see RESTORE photo). The restoration is not significant as it affects just the lower part of one of the bodies and a spot of one leg. The important features, the bills, heads and legs are virtually 100% there. The bowl was acquired from the rancher and has not been in any collection to date. This is a great opportunity to add a wonderful "NEW FIND" Mimbres picture bowl to a collection at a competitive price.

SOLD 

Any fetish of a Mountain Lion (note long tail over the top of the back) from the Native American cultures is scarce much less an original Mimbres example which dates from 950-1150AD. Measuring 3.25" x 1.375" x 1.75" it is made from fine sandstone and exhibits a large amount of the original paints of yellow, purple red and turquoise (note the colored mask on the face). The pointed ears, the four feet and the mouth show a significant amount of wear from years of use. The right ear has been reattached but other than that it is in superb condition. This is a piece that should appeal not only to the collectors in the prehistoric fields but also effigy and fetish collectors. A very rare item!

THE PHOTOS OF THIS PIECE HAVE NOT BEEN ENHANCED OR RETOUCHED....THEY REPRESENT THE TRUE COLORS.

SOLD! 

The bowl offered here is a real anomaly in that it is clearly a Mimbres piece but it has a distinctive Tularosa design on the interior. The bowl measures 7.4 inches wide and 2 inches deep with pressure cracks and a chip on the rim. There is no restoration of any kind. It is known that the different groups (Mimbres, Tularosa, Snowflake, etc.) interrelated and there are some scarce ceramic pieces that survive which indicate the contact and possibly some marriages between the groups. Examples like these are quite unusual.

SOLD 

Little needs to be said about this bowl C. 1100AD which measures 11.25" wide, is broken and glued with very minor restoration amounting to less than 3%, mostly in the blank center field. The artwork is superb and the condition exceptional as most Mimbres pieces, except the very high end, tend to have more restoration and repainting.

SOLD 

This beautiful Mimbres bowl (c. 1100AD) measures about 10.8" wide, is broken and glued from only four pieces and has no restoration or addition of paint. The superb images are very strong and the bowl has a special presence in that it fired in an environment which had oxygen causing it to take on a warm, almost glowing, red color. Without question a wonderful example of the high levels the Mimbres artists attained.

SOLD  

Offered here is a truly wonderful classic Mimbres bowl with a perfectly executed powerful image of a deer. This Deer bowl is late Mimbres C. 1100AD (indicated by the three top bands on the inside) and the bowl measures 10" x 4.8", broken and glued with "Santa Fe Style" restoration (which means the bulk of the cracks on the inside have minor filling). The slip is very white and the paint is darker than the photos tend to show. There are three small pieces 100% in the white field behind the deer's rump which are patched (can see in photo #56); one tiny piece also in the white field in front of the mouth and a piece almost solely in the horizontal lines within the body of the deer which had been the kill. It was patched so the eye would not just go to the center hole. This was purchased by a major Arizona collector in the group about seven years ago for an allocated price of $19,000. At the Santa Fe Antique Indian Art Show, August 2006 this bowl was offered by another dealer for sale at $22,000.00. I recently purchased, as part of a larger collection, this bowl from the owner who bought it seven years ago so I can offer it at a much better price.

The restoration, which can be reversed without harm, is minor and was done to enhance the aesthetic values since it is such a wonderful and powerful image. At $22,000 it was priced at full retail; here at $15,000.00 it is a very fair, almost wholesale price.

SOLD! 

This incredible Mimbres geometric bowl measure 10.4" wide and 4" deep and is as pristine condition as the day it was made.

The interior exhibits two completely separate complex geometric forms. The first in the center has four elements arranged in an opposing patterns of bars each feathered to a center point. This design is very reminiscent of a woven basket. The second element is on the wall of the bowl - it is a negative pattern white line that extends through three different mazes and three different solid elements. The white line is continuous in such a fashion that it becomes a single element returning upon itself. In doing so it becomes a single element itself.

Without question this is one of the finest Mimbres geometric bowls extant - if that is not enough it is in perfect original condition.

Discovered in the early '80's by the owner of a five acre parcel of land in southeast Arizona ..... what a day it must have been for him when he found this bowl! No runs, cracks, chips or errors!!
