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 

Black and white ollas of size (in excess of 12”) are not uncommon unless in whole condition. Black and red ollas of this size are virtually unheard of in any condition; they are at least 1000 times rarer than their black and white counterparts. This WHOLE example measures in excess of 13” in diameter and exhibits a very nice design throughout. The obvious “issue” with this example is the exfoliation occurring on the lower portion of one side. This exfoliation is the result of a portion of the olla, though being in a cave or alcove, was exposed to the elements causing a loss of the paint and finish in that area. On the other hand, the olla exhibits a very strong and near perfect side and top for display. Given the significant rarity of the olla coupled with it being whole makes it an excellent value and strong example until a better one could be obtained…which probably will not occur as there are maybe less than 12 whole examples known to exist; most of those are in institutions. If this olla had consistent paint and surface without the exfoliation, it would conservatively sell in excess of $15,000.00, maybe significantly more which emphasizes the value at hand. EX.

SOLD!!  

Every once in awhile a really special completely original Mesa Verde bowl comes along - this is one of those. Measuring a large 12.2 inches wide and 5.75 inches deep, it exhibits a typical light gray slip with atypical jet black paint - there is no restoration or addition of paint. The interior design has two large bands; the upper one a Mesa Verde diamond pattern each having two interlocked stepped elements. The lower band has lines that generally run in a forty-five degree pattern. A key element of the Mesa Verde bowls is the ticking marks on the rim; there are four sets of three ticks each. At the bottom center of the bowl there is a raised dimple (see indentation photo of the exterior bottom) also a characteristic of Mesa Verde bowls.

The edge of the bowl was struck causing one piece to become dislodged. It has been glued back in and just below it is a fine crack that runs toward the center.

This represents a rare opportunity to acquire a really superb example that is absolutely stunning to the eye. It is hard to believe but the bowl looks better in person than the pictures represent!
