Gonzales, Juanita & Wo-Peen – Red Sunrise Plate (1930’s)

11.75" diameter

$ 1,100.00

This is an unusual large plate by Juanita Gonzales and Wo-Peen Gonzales.  It is fully polished in a deep red. It is painted with a sunrise design in a “red-on-red” style. This type of coloration was seen in their earlier work.  Juanita would make and polish the pottery, and Wo-Peen would paint the design.  The piece is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair, but with light wear to the surface.  It is signed on the back in the clay, “Juanita + Wo-Peen.”   It is great to find one of their pieces with such a unique design and in red!
