Salazar, Frances – Wedding Vase with Deer
7.5"w x 10"h
Santa Clara potter Frances Salazar was known for her painted pottery. This wedding vase is from the 1950’s. It is fully polished and has a deer painted on each side. Below the deer are cloud patterns and in front of the deer are prayer feathers. The deer are painted in the classic Pueblo two-dimensional style and are charming and a bit whimsical as well. It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Frances”. It is in good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair. There are some rubs on the surface. Definitely a charming piece of Pueblo history!
