A large polychrome Acoma pottery olla

First-quarter 20th Century; New Mexico
The thin-walled pot with an all-over black and white geometric motif and red base
10.75" H x 12" Dia.

  • Provenance: The James M. Cole Collection, Visalia, CA
  • Notes: Collector's note states: "This old Acoma pot from New Mexico was made by Levaneeka in the early 1930's and given by her to her childhood fried Winona Winneas (sp). She named her oldest daughter Winona after her friend. The Acoma tribe members called this daughter Nona. I bought the pot from Mrs. Fred Winneasar (sp) at her home in New Ahmadu near San Jose in 1964. Lavaneeka had died and it made Winnona Winneasar (sp) sad to see this pot as it reminded her of her friend." Cole 2003
  • Condition: Overall good condition with scattered scuffs and craquelure to lower quarter. A pea sized flake reglued to rim. Other scattered wear commensurate with age and use.
