Last Friday's mystery image garnered three guesses, all of which were in the right area. Bowl, Southwest pottery, pottery jug.
This is a small Acoma bowl. We have several small Acoma pottery pieces. Acoma pottery is associated with the Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico, thought to be the longest continuously habitated place in the United States. The original collector tended to collect objects as art pieces, so we lack information regarding the age and history of this vessel.
