Object ID:

Gwen Setalla

3.375" h X 2.813" w

Like some early Twentieth Century mixing bowls with grocery store decals, this unusual pot advertises “Hopi Tribe; Old Oraibi” as part of its decoration, which also includes an image of a turtle and a lizard.

The signature of “GS” may be Gwen Setalla of Mishongnovi, Second Mesa, but this is uncertain.
