My dad passed these down to me before he died in 1976. The only information is that he had lived in Arizona and New Mexico in the 1920's and he apparently picked them up during that time because he never went back and I remember them as a young fellow in the 40's & 50's. There are no marks. The small piece in the last photo has rasied designs and is quite beautiful. The other pieces appear to be painted. There is no damages to any of the pieces.
Can anyone tell me what they are? I have traveled the southwest on vacation for decades and have never seen anything quite like them.

    In your second picture is a water pitcher because I have one almost identical same style and earthy paint tones. It was given to me in 1985 from a 94 yr old woman who told me it was Antique Acoma pottery. I have never seen any items like mine until now.

    Numbers 1 and 2 are Mexican, if they are old, there might be some value to them. Number 3 is Native American, number 4, can't tell. Number 3 is your best piece there.

    The bowl in number 3 is Acoma Pueblo - i'm pretty sure. the 4th pic may be Acoma as well, but it's hard to say from the photo. are those two signed underneath?

    the first two are Tonala pottery from mexico - extremely common, but might have some value if they're early - as stillwater says.

    Ah, I just remembered the name of #4, its San Juan Pueblo
