Native American Acoma Pottery Seed Pot - New Mexico

US$2,50050% Off


This unique polychrome Native American seed pot is round in form and decorated in an array of geometric shapes with a figural design on top. The colors are deep brown, reddish-orange, and cream. The top features a small hole for inserting seeds. Seed pots were designed to protect the seeds for next year's planting from rodents and insects. A wide-mouthed vessel like a traditional bowl, jar, or olla could not keep vermin out. So, seed pots were created with only a tiny hole that would allow one seed to be dropped in at a time. 3.25" Diameter 2.75" Tall
