  1. Sorry I didn't ever return to this post, and therefore didn't notice that there were additional questions/comments until just now. So here's my update: No, this is not Ken Edwards pottery. Ken wa...
  2. Not Native American. Appears to be from Lombock, Indonesia, based on the circular start, materials, and technique used.
  3. This isn't a Pendleton blanket. Pendleton always had a blue and gold, rectangular label. (Nor is it a blanket, the fringed textiles are technically classified as shawls.) The remnants of the labe...
  4. I wouldn't call it an effigy of any sort, just an odd-shaped spout. Looks like mid-20th century Cochiti, based on the bold and graphic leaf and flower design.
  5. It lacks the black or indigo stripe found on authentic Hudson Bay blankets, and the black points. Plus Hudson Bay blankets didn't come with a satin binding like this. So I'd say no, just a well-made...
  6. Isleta Pueblo, 1900-1920.
  7. No, not Inuit, although I can see why that might be thought, based on the. photo. To someone who has seen hundreds of similar bird dishes, however, it's instantly identified as traditional black pott...
  8. It's a contemporary pot, made in Mexico, by the Tarahumara of the Copper Canyon region. They are popular souvenir and/or decorator items. The old Jackalope store in Santa Fe used to carry them...
  9. It looks like a Mohave pot, from what I can see. (The Osage were semi-Nomadic Plains Indians, and did not make pottery.)
  10. Sorry, but this isn't Native American. It was made in Pakistan, from date palm fiber. The designs are often copied from Native American Indian baskets, but the colors used, and the material itse...
  11. It's a Herter's wood duck, with a rather odd paint job. (generally wood ducks have gold/tan coloring where the gray is, and white on the cheeks/head.) Should be stamped on the bottom, "Herters Inc. ...
  12. Vitrification is not connected with a particular type of kiln, but with the particular type of clay. Every clay has a different vitrification temperature, the temperature at which the chemical reacti...
  13. It's a class project, probably someone from 4th Period Pottery, based on the way it is signed, and the craftsmanship. Could have been made anywhere, nothing really shows any indication of it being fr...
  14. First one is Hopi, made on the Second Mesa. It's a bundle-coiled basket with non-interlocking stitches, made from yucca. It most likely dates to the first quarter of the 20th century. The more rece...
  15. Since all Navajo rugs are made for sale, to tourists and/or collectors, the market generally drives the styles, colors, and designs that are popular and therefore most likely to sell. So when the ru...
  16. All I can tell you for sure, is that it isn't Native American. It might be Mexican, might be a factory-made "southwest style" piece made for the tourist trade.
  17. It does appear to be a Navajo rug. It would help if you had a clear closeup photo of a corner and the edge of the rug, but from what I can see, it looks authentic. There is no name for the pattern...
  18. You have a mix of Mexican, southwest US Native American pieces, and one factory-made Sioux Pottery item from South Dakota. The carved wood piece in upper right is a chocolate stirrer, called a mol...
  19. The saguaro cactus, lizard-type creature, and Kokopelli images aren't usually associated with Denmark, but I suppose it's possible. I'd be more inclined to look at a Southwest origin. possibly M...
  20. There is a company in South Dakota that makes this type of pottery. It is often signed with a name, followed by "S.P.R.C. S.D." which stands for Sioux Pottery, Rapid City, South Dakota. There may b...
  21. It's not traditional Native American pottery. It appears to be a commercial greenware piece (made from a mold), and glazed on the inside, unlike authentic Native American pottery. The white cla...
  22. I just can't tell for sure from the photos. Possibly early 20th century Hopi, but possibly not Native American. The reddish color showing through the buff slip (?) doesn't look quite right for Hopi.
  23. Sorry, but this is not Native American, although it was probably designed to give that impression. It is contemporary pottery from Lombok, Indonesia. They have been combining this particular type o...
  24. I'd say late 1890s/early 20th century, as far as dating goes. Cochiti is a possibility, but so is Tesuque Polychrome. Check out some of the design patterns shown in Harlow's "Matte-Paint Pottery," ...
  25. Experts on Santo Domingo pottery, from Harlow to Allan Hayes, have discussed the difficulty in precisely dating a lot of Santo Domingo pots. I'm assuming there are no marks on the bottoms, which c...
  26. Harlow himself has admitted the difficulty in distinguishing between some early Cochiti and Santo Domingo pots. That led to his defining the term "Kiua Polychrome" in the 1960s, as the prevailing s...
  27. According to "The Myth and Magic of Nemadji 'Indian' Pottery" by Michelle D. Lee (the definitive reference on the topic), this "Indian head" stamp was actually the last stamp used by the factory, fro...
  28. Sorry, I'm too sick with the flu right now to help much. I'll get back to you when things improve.
  29. Not Native American. It's a manufactured trade blanket, made by one of several factories, the most famous probably being Pendleton, but also including Capps, Racine, Buell, and Shuler & Benninghofen....
  30. Good information on northern California basketry materials and techniques. Keep in mind, however, that the basket in question is not from California. The blog confirms many of the reasons why. For ...
  31. It's contemporary African, a coiled palm fiber basket made by the Hausa, of Nigeria.
  32. It's from southern Arizona, a traditional coiled yucca and devil's claw basket made by the Papago (now called Tohono O'odham.)
  33. It's African, a coiled palm fiber basket from Namibia.
  34. I'd say the candle holder is more likely Isleta, circa 1920, rather than Laguna. When you see the orange scalloped pattern on the bottom of a small bowl, it's Isleta. While this is on the inside...
  35. Not Native American Indian, but possibly the beads are from India. Appears to be a recently-made crafter's project, put together with turquoise-colored glass seed beads and inexpensive wooden heish...
  36. I'd agree, Santana Tenorio, ca. 1950 bowl. Allen Hayes and John Blom can be trusted to accurately identify what they show in their books. "Southwestern Pottery" is one the best references on the sub...
  37. I'd say it has a 1980s shape, and definite Santo Domingo (now called Kewa) Pueblo design patterns. I don't see any resemblance to Old Laguna pottery. The stylized leaf shapes, the banding lines b...
  38. Both the Zulu and the Ndebele from southern Africa make traditional beaded dolls. The colors and the size of the beads used generally is different, and they also incorporate wrapped wire in some of ...
  39. I'd say it's "Native American themed design" but not Native American made, and therefore can't be sold as such. It looks more like a studio pottery piece, made for the decorator market, which is wha...
  40. They are African, made in the Binga region of Zimbabwe by basket weavers of the Tonga tribe. Usually found on the web under a search for Tonga/Binga baskets. (Not to be confused with Tongan baskets...
  41. No, not rat or mouse bones. These are a Zuni folk art, made for the souvenir trade, beaded over a rabbit's foot. They were still being made like this in the 1990s, but most now are beaded over rolle...
  42. No, not Native American. It's a traditional type of African canteen, made by many tribes in Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya, etc. Maybe someone can narrow it down more, but it's definitely African.
  43. The only thing I can tell you, is that it definitely isn't Native American, based on the fringe, thick cord along the edge, and the weaving technique itself...none of which is characteristic of Native...
  44. It's African, from Sudan. Here's another one, from Ancient Artifax Galleries: http://ancientartifax.com/gallery.htm
  45. Scarysherrie, both your pot, and this one posted 9 months ago by dealqueen, are African, specifically from Sudan. They look old, but are contemporary. The main identifying features are the thick rol...
  46. Pottery with decoration wasn't made by the Shipibo until after World War II. Before that they only made undecorated pottery for their own use. After the war, missionaries suggested that they decora...
  47. It's Mexican, not Native American. A traditional Huastecan water jug, from San Luis Potosi, illustrated in "Ceramica, Mexican Pottery of the 20th Century" by Amanda Thompson, if you'd like a refe...
  48. African, made by the Hausa, of Nigeria.
