    size: 7 3/4" tall.

    Your response last time was very helpful. Purchased SW Pottery--Anasazi to Zuni....

      No, not San Ildefonso, or Native American Indian. It's Mexican, from the village of Mata Ortiz, in northern Chihuahua.

      There is a well-known Mata Ortiz potter named Martin Olivas, which is probably what the signature says.

      Unlike southwest Indian pottery, Mata Ortiz pottery has a rounder bottom, the bottoms are burnished, and the signatures are incised.
