Lot 0076


Lovely classic carved blackware pottery bowl made and signed by Rose Cata Gonzales (1900 - 1989). Rose Gonzales is often considered the earliest pioneer of the deeply carved blackware pottery style.
This pot is a classic example of her work: it has a deeply carved swag design on the shoulder, which is left matte to stand out against the highly polished body. The interior of the pot is also matte.
Excellent condition, with one small area (shown in the photos) where the black is not as dense. This is "as made." Signed on the bottom with the original price tag of $1.65.
Measures about 5 1/4" diameter by about 3" high.
