$ 975.00

Carmelita Dunlap is one of the San Ildefonso potters best known for her large vessels.  This is a classic water jar shape with a sharp shoulder and an elongated neck. The rim of the jar is undulating or “fluted”.  The neck of the jar is painted with a feather pattern and below is a cloud design.  The entire piece is very highly polished and fired a glassy black.  The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Carmelita Dunlap”.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.  Definitely a traditional classic of her work!
