  • Ex-Elkhart Collection, Santa Fe, New Mexico.

    See Harlow, Two Hundred Years of Historic Pueblo Pottery: The Gallegos Collection, Plate 67, for A Polychrome Dough Bowl, Kiua Culture, circa 1830, with a similar shape and overall configuration.

    “This fine dough bowl is believed to have been made at the village of Cochiti, which is not far to the north of Santo Domingo, along the famous Rio Grande that arises in Colorado and flows along the border of the United States and Mexico on its way to the Gulf of Mexico. The style of this bowl is much like that of Santo Domingo, starkly geometric and rhythmically static, but the rosette of radiating unpainted leaves (or petals) in the black square on the left is more commonly associated with Cochiti designs of the early 1800’s. In classic style for the villages close to the Rio Grande, the bowl bears a red band at the top of the unslipped underbody, a feature that persists until the second or third decades of the 1900’s. An especially significant feature of this bowl is the application of red pigment to the top of the rim. Shortly after this bowl was made, the rim-top color on vessels from Cochiti, Santo Domingo, Zia and Santa Ana changed to black and remained that color until the present day. (The Tewa villages a little farther north did not switch rim-top color from red to black until well into the 1900’s.)” -F.H.H.
