|Found north of Cuba, New Mexico in 1961, this 5” long prehistoric Indian bird jar (TEH63) is from the estate of the late Chester Howard, founder of the Colorado Mineral Society. Without restoration, the jar has minor spalling, a chipped left wing, is heavily fire clouded, and may be missing a piece along the mouth of the jar that represented a small ‘beak’. Identified as an Alma Plain type, the jar dates c.300-925AD and is attributed to the Mogollon subgroup. An interesting little effigy piece, it comes with a small display card, a biographical sketch about Howard, and a certificate stating that the jar is not in violation of any laws. We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be adding many more items from Howard collection including: Native American textiles, beadwork, pottery; Pre-Columbian pottery, artifacts, beads, figurines; some 375 Hacienda tokens; a great assortment of picturesque and decorative artifact frames that Howard had professionally constructed to house many of his treasures; and much more.
