TESUQUE POSTER PAINT JAR circa 1950


We'll keep putting these up for sale as long as we can find them, because we hope they're never forgotten. During the 1930s and 1940s, hungry potters from Tesuque and Jemez did anything they culd to make money, and that included making little unfired pieces decorated in fragile poster paint. this little jar is about as garish as they come, and because of that, it has a special place in our affections. We devoted pages 180 and 181 of the Second Edition of our Southwestern Pottery, Anasazi to Zuni to these, and this one shows up on page 181.
