This is a wonderful Tanque Verde bowl (C. 1100 - 1200AD) measuring a full 11" in diameter and 7" deep. It has bold paint against a cream background encompassing all of the exterior and extending into the interior. It is intact with a small pressure crack in the bottom which cannot be seen from the exterior. This item was discovered by Dr. Raymond Thomas of Phoenix Arizona and has no restoration of any kind. A very rare piece. This item was discovered by Dr. Ray Thomas on private land in the early 1980's.
This rare bowl was in my collection from 1996 to 2003. Because of the exceptional condition we recently repurchased the bowl as we do with so many of the pieces we sell.
