$ 1,700.00

It is not often that we come across pottery by Margaret Tafoya from the 1940’s!  This jar is a traditional shape for her pottery and very deeply carved. The jar has an alternating Key Hole doorway design, inspired by the shape of the doorways on the cliff dwellings.  This alternating style is both striking on the piece and also has a very modern appearance.  The jar is fully polished and fired a deep black.  It is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Margaret Tafoya”.  It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
