1940s Acoma olla, pie crust rim


A lovely older Acoma olla with a detailed pie crust rim.  The rim has an impressed toothed pattern.  This polychrome olla or wide bowl is beautifully painted with delicate dotted swirls softening the geometric designs.  Used at a Pueblo, there are bits of powdered red pigment around the rim.  Lovely old patina and handled surface.  It is marked on the underside but this could be either a maker’s or owner’s mark, “JP, Acoma.”  Circa 1940, 6 1/4″ x 9,” in very good old condition with surface wear.
