Pottery Antique Southwestern Scoop
Add this unusual Antique Pottery piece to your collection! This Southwestern style Pottery Scoop could be Acoma or Isleta in origin. We think it comes from the early 20th century.
The potter created this scoop (ladle? pitcher?) with a wavy rim. He or she added a handle for scooping or pouring. Then the potter covered the outside with a white slip and added geometric line designs with black paint and red slip. On the bottom you will see more red slip. The inside remains plain.
A previous owner had this piece in their collection. It looks like it may have held something at one point as the inside looks soiled. This scoop measures about 5.5″ long including the handle. It measures 3.5″ wide at the widest point and it stands not quite 2″ tall.
One of a Kind!
