MOJAVE RED ON BUFF BASKET circa 1925
As far as we can tell, this came from the last period of Mojave pottery activity before Annie Fields started working again in the 1950s. It's a modest piece with abraded wear on one side and on the handle. We've seen this on other Mojave pieces. It's as if they spent time in the desert sand, getting knocked around until the paint wore off. It's hardly a recommendation for condition, but it speaks well for the authenticity of a desert connection. This appears on page 97 of the First Edition of Southwestern Pottery, Anasazi to Zuni and on page 29 of our Collections of Southwestern Pottery.
4-1/4" diameter x 4-1/2" high
Condition very good except for the abraded paint, no restoration or touchup
