Pottery Canteen - Southwestern Clay

Feast your eyes on this Antique Southwestern Pottery Canteen!  We believe this Southwestern Clay   Canteen is Tohono O'odham.    The Tohono O'odham (Desert People) are from eastern Arizona and northwestern Mexico.  They often used a dark red clay for their pottery.
The potter decorated this canteen with cactus designs in black slip.  It also features three lugs on the sides and bottom that allow a carrying string to pass through.  This canteen also comes with a glass and cork stopper, which is unusual.
This Canteen came from an old family collection.  Structurally it remains in excellent condition.  You will see marks, wear and fading on the finish.  The original woven fiber carrying string is still intact.
The Canteen measures 6.25" wide and 6.5" tall (to the top of the spout).  It has a convex shape and measures about 3" wide at the widest point.
One of a Kind!
