KEWA POLYCHROME DOUBLE PITCHER circa 1935


In our 2015 Second Edition of Southwestern Pottery, Anasazi to Zuni, we call a piece like this a double-spouted basket, which is probably as accurate a description as double pitcher. They made these at Kewa in the 20th century, and as far as we can tell, nowhere else. This is a bit smaller than many of these, but flares out more dramatically than most. Its extreme shape makes it the poster child for the type. This had some surface scuffing near the bottom which you can see in the top picture at bottom right. The scuffs have been touched up to match the overall condition of the piece. Because of the slight damage, we bought it at an excellent price. It's an iconic piece, and the price is a genuine bargain.


11" wide x 5" deep x 6-3/4" high


After touchup, condition really good for its age
