POTTERY TYPE: Cedar Creek /Black on White ORIGIN: White Mountain area of East Arizona AGE: Ca. 1300 - 1325 A. D. SIZE: 8 1/2” in height by 9” in diameter DESCRIPTION: A beautifully coiled and fired olla. The shape is almost perfect. The exterior is slipped with white clay and painted with black vegital paint (as opposed to ground mineral pigments.) The geometric elements include “eye” motifs circling the rim, zig-zag lines, fine line netting, wide black lines, and four figures nearing the upper rim...most likely stylized macaws. It is a rare form and the workmanship for the period is superior. Many pieces from this culture have runny and sloppy paint work. It has been professionally reassembled from several large segments with the crack lines covered over. It has less than 1% restoration. PROVENANCE: Former Hyatt Collection.
