An Acoma Pueblo tourist pottery dish,

circa 1930's-1940's

A charming little New Mexico Pueblo souvenir, this piece was likely sold to a passenger on the Santa Fe Railway by an Acoma potter at a whistle-stop along the tracks. It is notable because the painted design reads

"Zuni-Cibola Trail" but the dish was actually made at Acoma Pueblo and is marked "Acoma NM" on the bottom.

Encircling the dish around the words is a Navajo style Rainbow Warrior design. This is a cross-cultural

"Pan-Indian" design which was characteristic of many pieces made for the tourist trade. The dish measures     4 7/8" in diameter and 7/8" in height and is in very good original condition with one small chip to the rim.
