KEWA POLYCHROME BOWL WITH CUP HANDLE circa 1940


It's not hard to find pre-World War II Kewa chile bowls. They're usually about this size and look much like this, except that this one has a cup handle that makes it a convenient mixing bowl as well. By the 1930s, most Pueblo pottery was made for tourists, but these Santo Domingo bowls were for home use, and this was well used. A chip in the bottom might well have been made by a heavy spoon during mixing-bowl service. At Kewa, utilitarian pottery remains alive and well.


8" diameter excluding handle x 4" high


Condition very good, repaired chip from wear in bottom of bowl, otherwise unrestored
