San Ildefonso -- Polychrome Storage Jar

Circa 1890, H. 22 cm., Coll. Mr. and Mrs. Larry Frank

Directly derived from the finest and most typical storage jars of Powhoge Polychrome , this beautiful jar was made for service rather that the tourist market by Mrs Tonita Pena. The jar is decorated in a style attributable to Alfredo Montoya. Red banding, red rim top, stone-polished slip, native vegetal pigments, and all other details preserve the earliest traditions. It is virtually independent of outside influences.
