This bowl has an interesting provenance.  It was originally purchased in 1972 by a collector who went to Hopi and managed the meet Nellie Nampeyo and her daughter Marie Koopee right after they had fired the pottery.  He bought all the pieces that they had and put the date on them on the bottom in pencil. I left the date and number, as I thought it was a great part of the story of this bowl!”.  It is in good condition with no cracks, restoration or repair. There is a small inclusion on the side, which appears to be pre-firing.
