Anasazi Chaco Canyon Black on White Pottery Pitcher
Item Details
Description
Native American, northwestern New Mexico, Chaco Canyon, Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) culture, ca. 1075 to 1150 CE. A sizable, hand-built pottery pitcher with a round but stable base, a wide, apple-shaped body with a lightly-corseted shoulder, a tall, tapering neck with a flared rim, and a thick strap handle joining rim to shoulder. The exterior of the white-ground vessel is decorated with applied black pigment in repeating checkerboard registers boasting dozens of squares alternating between diagonal frets and emptiness, and the handle exhibits a similar diamond-shaped motif. All black-painted embellishments are painted in a style characteristic of Chaco Canyon called "Red Mesa Black-on-White." Size: 5.75" W x 9.5" H (14.6 cm x 24.1 cm).

For a stylistically-similar example with a different black-on-white motif, please see the National Park Service, Chaco Culture Natural Historical Park, catalog number CHCU 92338: https://www.nps.gov/museum/exhibits/chcu/obj/fullres/pitcher_chcu92338_full.html
