A historic Acoma Pueblo Polychrome pottery square or rectangular bowl, circa 1900-1915


It’s square, and boy oh boy, is it ever rare. In fact, this is the only example of a historic Acoma Pueblo square pottery bowl that we have ever seen. And while it’s just beautiful all the way around, the painted flower design on the bottom of the bowl is truly remarkable as you can see in the photos here.


The bowl measures 5 3/4” in length, 4 1/2” in width and 3 1/2” in height. It is in generally excellent original condition with some age-appropriate abrasion and scuffing.


There appear to be a couple of small extension terraces on either of the long sides of the bowl that were either ground down or otherwise removed at some point in the bowl’s history or, alternatively, the bowl might possibly have once had a narrow strap style carrying handle as these “cornmeal” bowls occasionally did have to facilitate holding

the bowl in one hand and scattering the cornmeal with the other hand.


In any case, this bowl is an exceedingly rare and

very beautiful piece of Pueblo pottery history.
