This large meticulously detailed bowl dates Ca.850 A.D -1000 A.D. It measures 9 3/4” in diameter by 4 1/2” in height. The outstanding attention to detail is evident and very clear in the attached photos. The exterior is a tan/brown with “fire clouds” in various areas around the rim on the exterior. The interior is smudged a deep charcoal black and highly burnished. It is an unparalleled example of the type. The vessel was personally excavated in 1967 at a small site north of Glenwood, New Mexico with the permission of the owner. A COA will be provided. The bowl was
found in three large original segments and taken to a highly talented restorer who re-assembled the bowl and covered over the break lines which are invisible to the naked eye. The bowl was found sitting upright about a foot below the original surface of the ground and the freezing and thawing of the soil at that level most likely caused the breakage. Once again, the workmanship is outstanding in all respects.
