Prehistoric Anasazi Chaco Black-on-White Seed Jar
Item Details
Description
Native American, Southwestern United States, New Mexico, Anasazi (Ancestral Puebloan), Chaco style, ca. 975 to 1150 CE. A lovely hand-built pottery vessel that rests on a rounded base with a globular body and two strap handles flanking the sides. The surface is a light gray hue with darker burnished areas. Below the wide mouth are triangular shapes with wavy lines painted in black. As the name implies, seed jars are vessels for storing seeds over the winter, and the handles were for suspension. Early Native American cultures did not have potters' wheels and created pottery by coiling clay and scraping the sides smooth. The Anasazi people depended on farming and pottery as a means of survival; both agricultural goods and pottery were traded between neighboring communities. Size: 9" W x 6.5" H (22.9 cm x 16.5 cm)

Provenance: private New Jersey, USA collection; ex- Bradford’s Auctions, Sun City, Arizona, USA

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
