Type is Sikyatki Polychrome, a ware made in the 15th and 16th centuries. The elaborate design with highly conventionalized geometric elements probably dates this as late 16th or early 17th centuries. Yellow background with black and red designs. Shape is characteristic Hopi with flattened shoulder and small mouth. Rim flares outward. Lip has two broken places.
Gift of Mrs. Louis S. Clarke
