Roybal, Tonita – Jar with Cloud and Rain Designs (1920’s)
Tonita Roybal is one of the great innovative names in San Ildefonso pottery. This is a classic jar with a high shoulder and a short neck. The jar is highly polished and painted with a rain and cloud design around the shoulder. It was fired to a gunmetal coloration. The jar is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Tonita”. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair with some slight surface wear commensurate with age.
