$ 300.00

This jar or canister is by Juanita and Wo-Peen Gonzales.  It is carved with the cameo style that Juanita learned from Rose Gonzales.  It has step-shaped clouds separated by a vertical rain design.  The triangles are representative of mountains.  It is highly polished and has a deep black coloration.  The jar is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair and some wear near the base.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Juanita Wo-Peen”.   It is great to find one of their pieces in such wonderful condition!
