TAOS or PICURIS MICACEOUS BEAN POT circa 1970
This fire-darkened piece stands as all the explanation you need to understand that high-fired, oven-safe, gold-flecked micaceous Taos and Picuris pottery has always been made to be used. It's been said that beans never taste quite right unless they've been cooked in a Taos or Picuris bean pot, and this seems to have seen its share of beans. It appears on page 175 of the Second Edition of our Southwestern Pottery, Anasazi to Zuni.
5-1/2" diameter excluding handle x 4" high
Condition excellent. It looks like it should once it's been in an oven.
