Native American pottery of the U.S. southwest has long been considered collectible and today can fetch many thousands of dollars per piece.
Authors, collectors, and dealers Carol and Allen Hayes provide readers with a concise overview of the pottery of the southwest, from its origins in the Bastketmaker period (around 400 AD) to the Spanish entrada (1540 AD-1879 AD) to today’s new masters.
Readers will find dozens of color images depicting pottery from the Zuni, Hopi, Anasazi, and many other peoples. Maps help readers identify where these master potters and their peoples lived (i.e. the Pueblo - a tribal group or area).
Pottery of the Southwest will serve as a useful introduction as well as a lovely guide for enthusiasts.
