Eunice “Fawn” Navasie was a daughter-in-law of Paqua Naha and a sister-in-law of Joy “Frogwoman” Navasie. This is a large wedding vase from the 1970s. The piece is painted with swirling birds on each side. The piece is painted with bee-weed (black) and red clay slip. The wedding vase was traditionally fired which created the blushes on the white surface. This coloration of blushes on the white clay slip has been called “meringue”. That seems accurate as in-person it does look like meringue on a desert! Eunice was actually known for the great colorations from the firing. The jar is signed on the bottom with her “Fawn” hallmark, It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
