A small pitcher with some of the most recognizable ancient Southwestern design styles, Mimbres Black-on-White Geometric. The Mimbres people occupied the mountain and river valleys of southwestern New Mexico; the name we know them by is from the Spanish word for the willows that grew alongside the river valleys. The artists responsible for creating pottery vessels like this were women, and many women have been found in burials accompanied by pottery making tools. Size: 3.3" W x 3.6" H (8.4 cm x 9.1 cm)
