* Vintage Item - As Is

This 1980's Van Briggle Pottery figure depicts a kneeling Indian maiden, her hair in braids, holding a large pot. The glaze, called Ming Blue, is an overall pale turquoise color with a darker blue overspray glaze that gives it depth. The woman portrayed is often identified as a "Hopi Indian."

The finisher on this piece was Clara Beyers who was known to have finished pieces in the late 1980's. (Her conjoined initials CB are incised on the bottom). Finishers at Van Briggle Pottery added or enhanced the details on the pottery piece. The bottom is also incised with the Van Briggle AA logo; to the left of the logo are the initials (or Roman numerals) IV, which are unidentified. The names Van Briggle and Colo Spgs are also scribed into the clay.

Standing 8 inches tall, the figure measures 6 inches from front to back and weighs 2 1/2 pounds. It has unfortunately received a hard knock on the back sometime in the past, which has resulted in fine cracks that radiate out from the spot, which resembles a round chip. The cracks go up and to the left and also almost straight down to the right, continuing onto the bottom. All of this is pictured in our photos; the close-ups of course make the cracks look far larger than they really are. The cracks seem very stable, but because of them, we've priced this piece low and AS IS. From the front, it displays nicely and is an affordable alternative to an undamaged piece.
