$ 1,400.00

This is a classic plate by Maria Martinez, but with an unusual design.  It was made and polished by Maria Martinez and painted by her daughter-in-law Santana.  The plate is painted with a seed and plant pattern.  The “seed” is the two half spheres and they are surrounded by leaf and tendril designs.  The plate is highly polished and fired to a silvery gunmetal-black.  It is signed on the back, “Marie + Santana”.  It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
