Gonzales, Ramona Sanchez – Plate with Bird Design (1920’s)
This is a striking painted bowl by Ramona Gonzales. Ramona was known for her delicately painted pottery. This plate is almost more like an open bowl. It is fully polished on the front and back. The design has a bird which fills up the entire surface of the plate. The polished background and matte painted designs work perfectly on this piece. It is signed on the back in the clay, “Ramona”. It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. There is some wear on the surface. This is definitely an important piece of her pottery.
