Acoma Jar Stolen from Albuquerque, NM Gallery, June 17, 2008

An antique Acoma Olla was stolen from an Old Town, Albuquerque, NM Gallery on June 17, 2008.

This image is of a stolen antique Acoma Olla, black on white design, 10-12″ in diameter.

Theft by Navajo man age 40-50, 5ft 6in, no front teeth, tattoo on left shoulder of seahorse outline – messy, thin… Walked in and gave me a bag of “jewelry” then turned around and walked out and lifted the pot and walked out. He got into a white Dodge truck approx 1998 with white camper shell or it could have been a small suv – happened too fast to see.
