    Interesting piece I purchased with other items in lot. Could only have 4 pictures. Side has wavy lines (pic #1), side has some partial diamond and black line (pic #2), faint lines on bottom (pic #3), and crème color over white from the bottom (pic #4).

    Clearly older pottery piece. CR can you help more with Age? and possibly Pueblo?
    Size W: 6" H: 3".

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

      I'm afraid this one has too much damage, and is too removed from its original look, to positively identify it based on photos. A determination of where the clay originated is about all that's possible at this time, which can't be done solely through photos.

      My first thought was possibly Hopi, based on the color of the clay. However, the wavy line decoration combined with the black line and triangle designs, is not characteristic of Hopi, or any other southwest pueblo pottery. It's possible, therefore, that this is actually from somewhere else, such as Ecuador, Panama, or Colombia...which would be more in line with the few clues remaining on the bowl.

      CR, thank you for reviewing the listing. Could you review a posting about 3 weeks ago I made. I think it is Zuni, possible early 1900's. Interesting, crude made piece.

      thanks again...

      I think you were right on both counts...early 1900s, and Zuni.
