Pottery Acoma Pot with Bear Lid
This one of a kind Acoma Pot comes with a Lid that features a 3 dimensional Heartline Bear. The potter covered the pot with classic Black & White geometric designs. He or she then added a series of human figures with Red Lines on them.
The potter sculpted a Bear shape with a Red Heartline to serve as the handle for the lid. He or she decorated the lid with conifer branches and red dots. You will see LJ Acoma, NM on the bottom.
Traditional Acoma pottery comes from the Pueblo in New Mexico. The pottery usually features very thin walls, a desireable characteristic. Most artists create their pottery using hand coiled techniques. They often use Black, White and Red slip colors.
A previous owner had this lidded Pot in a collection. You will see some discoloration on it and some wear on the bottom. Some Black slip has come off the Bear, especially from the ears, and the underside of the lid. Structurally, this piece remains in very good condition.
This Acoma Pot stands just about 6.5″ tall with the lid on. Alone, the pot is about 4.5″ high. It measures about 4″ in diameter at its widest point. The top opening measures 2.75″ in diameter.
