COCHITI POLYCHROME TURTLE FIGURINE
Another pleasant creature from our early-century Cochiti beastiary. This quiet, softball-sized turtle sits placidly, most likely contemplating its years of probable service as a paperweight. It has one remarkable distinction in that it's the only turtle we've ever seen with portholes. This came from a collection gathered in the 1920s and 1930s and stayed in the family until they called us. Even without the provenance, we'd have chosen the 1930 date. It's exactly the sort of imaginative piece that Cochiti potters made for the tourists back then.
