    Recently purchased this piece. W is 3.5" and H is 2.5". A dealer friend thinks this is Acoma by the whitish clay. Maybe 1930-40's, possibly earlier. But I have never seen animal effigies inside of the bowl.

    CR, could use your expertise.

    thanks, for your knowledge in the past, present and future...

      This is a bowl from Cochiti Pueblo. There are similarities with the pottery of neighboring Santo Domingo (now called Kewa), but the way the birds are depicted is positively Cochiti.

      The design of the black band on the outside is found on both Santo Domingo and Cochiti pottery, but Santo Domingo designs tend to be "bolder" and more simple than Cochiti decoration, whose images often are described as "whimsical."

      Acoma potters often use the same colored slips, but the clay body is different, and the way it is finished gives a slightly different texture and look.

      Acoma birds are depicted differently, as well, showing primarily parrots.

      Dating Cochiti pottery is difficult, because up until the 1960s, when many potters turned to making story tellers, there were few changes in the basic Cochiti style. I'd say this is pre-1960, but could easily be 1920s to 1950s.

      I thought the black band was similar to Santo Domingo pottery, turns with Cochiti being next door, some influence.

      Thanks again for your knowledge. I pass by SD and Cochiti twice daily during the week....

      One last question, listing another piece that I bought with the Cochiti piece. Art work is similar, but the pottery bottom has different color. Could it another Cochiti?

      Thanks CRoad....

      Found it, and replied in more detail on your new thread. (I think it's early Tesuque.)

      Thanks again CR, great writing. Hope I'm not taking too much of your time....

      Timing worked out fine. Right now I'm at a show for the rest of the weekend, so may not be able to check back in here for a couple days.
