$ 600.00

This is a classic jar by Santana and Adam Martinez.  Adam was the youngest son of Maria Martinez, and Santana (his wife) painted Maria’s pottery in the 1940-50s.  The jar has a round shape, a sharp shoulder, and a short neck.  The entire piece is fully polished.  The shoulder of the jar has a cloud and rain design painted on the surface.  The jar was traditionally fired to silvery gunmetal-black coloration.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Santana + Adam”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.  Definitely a classic piece!
