Zuni Pueblo Pot

  • 1850-1875
  • Height 10 inches
  • #FCHP226

Since about 1700, Zuni pots have been decorated with flat mineral paints. Zuni pottery generally has a glossy white slip with bold, curvilinear designs. Note the damage around the rim that was probably caused by a ladle handle that dipped water from the vessel.
