.5"w x 1"h

$ 225.00

Thomas Natseway is one of the most renowned miniaturists in Pueblo pottery.  Rarely does he make a piece that is over 1″ tall or wide!  This miniature is wonderfully complex in design and style. The piece is a canteen shape, or flat-sided.  It is painted on both sides.  One side has a warrior with a shield and arrows.  The other has an anthropomorphic style figure with a bow and arrow and antelope on its back.  The design extends around the side of the canteen.  The lid is round and has a painted mountain design.  It is amazing for the size!  It is signed on the bottom, “Thomas Nasteway”.
