Although this bowl may not have been created by the Picasso of Anasazi artists it still has great character and charm. It dates from c.a.1200-1300AD and measures 8 3/4" in diameter by 4" in height. The background slip is a soft pale gray with charcoal black design elements. There are interlocking square scrolls, triangles, zig-zag lines, and dots along with black rim ticking which helps to identify it as Mesa Verde ware. Some authorities claim that the interlocking scrolls are stylized macaws. The piece is in excellent condition. One small rim shard has been repaired along with a few other very minor rim chips. These may have been purposely done to "kill" the bowl and release its spirit according to many archaeologists. The piece meets all requirements for legality under current State and Federal Laws. A COA will be provided to the purchaser. Pieces in this excellent overall condition are becoming harder and harder to find as collectors are not releasing them and many are in museums around the country.
