Acoma Four-Color Long Neck Vase, c. 1920’s


Beautiful example with slightly tilted neck (part of its considerable charm). Rich deep reds and oranges with flowers, checkerboards, fine lines and zigzag (rain and lightning) designs in three distinct horizontal fields. A non-utilitarian piece likely created for a special occasion or for a new and evolving art market for pueblo pottery in the first couple of generations after the trains began to bring tourists to New Mexico; striking and rare.

Size 9.5” tall x 6.5” wide
