Item available for viewing at the Whitehawk Antique Show - Santa Fe, NM.
Lovely golden pottery jar by the original Frog Woman, Paqua Naha, 1890-1955, mother of Joy Navasie the second Frog Woman.
Traditionally hand built with native clay, stone burnished and decorated with plant and slip colors, pit fired. The lovely olla shaped jar stands 8" tall and is 10 1/2" diameter, signed with her Frog drawing.
Paqua was an accomplished traditional Hopi potter for years before she discovered the deposit of white clay. Known for her large scale pots and bold graphic designs, she was an award winning artist back in the day. This was originally from the 1940s, a judge in Phoenix owned it, my collector has owned it for over 40 years.
Great original condition, no cracks or chips, minor wear from handling. This pottery jar is a must for a serious collector of Hopi pottery!
Buyer pays $45.00 for shipping and insurance.
