ACOMA BIRD EFFIGY CANTEEN circa 1920
Not all fine Acoma pottery from the early 20th century consisted of bowls and jars. If there ever was a piece that exemplified our quest to find the old and unusual, this is it. This two-headed pushme-pullyu (Carol called it a turducken) was made by a highly skilled artist, undoubtedly to appeal to tourists passing through on the train. The fact that it survives in unscathed condition testifies to the fact that at least one tourist succumbed to its appeal. If you want what we believe is one of the few three-dimensional representations of a turducken, go no further. And most likely, don't even try. We've never seen another and don't expect to.
