Roybal, Tonita – Gunmetal Fired Jar with Cloud Designs
5.25"w x 3.5"h
This is a visually striking jar by Tonita Roybal, from the 1920’s. The jar was made and painted by Tonita. It has a wide, round shoulder, and a slight neck. The jar is painted with a series of cloud patterns separated by rain and wind designs. Note the strength of the painting on the piece and the wide lines, which enhance the design. While beautifully painted, it is the firing, which gave this jar a very metallic gunmetal appearance. It is a beautiful surface and great designs. The jar is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. It is signed on the bottom, “Tonita”.
