MARICOPA BLACK ON CREAM JAR circa 1925


This came to us with another simila jar, enough like it that it was impossible to know whether the potter intended to make a pair or, as we suspect, wa just making pots that size on that particular day. In any event, it's an excellent example of early 20th century Maricopa whiteware. (At Maricopa, "white" can get to be a dark gray. It really just means "not red.") The bottle shape is pretty much a Maricopa exclusive, and potters gained bragging rights by making pieces with longer and longer necks.
