Roybal, Tonita – Bowl with Feather Design (1920’s)
Tonita Roybal remains one of the great innovative names in San Ildefonso pottery. This bowl reflects the exceptional nature of her pottery designs, shapes, and firing. The piece is one of her classic shapes with the sharp shoulder and sloping sides. The design is a feather pattern which is open at the top and extends down to the shoulder. It is highly polished and fired to a near gunmetal appearance. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed, “Tonita” in the clay on the bottom.
