I'm hoping someone knowledgeable can help identify where this beautiful little vase was made. It looks Native American to me, however, another vase I thought was Native American ended up actually being from Mexico (which I learned from an expert here on Collectors Weekly). So, I'm back again to ask for help with this one.
It's small -- about 4" high and 3-3/4" diameter. Made out of dark brown, almost black clay, which appears to be burnished rather than glazed. From what I can tell, the design seems to have been etched into the clay and then either white paint or powder was added into the lines to make them stand out.
