Unique Arts and Crafts Period Southwestern Pot Made From Ancient Anasazi Shards, circa 1910. A hand molded earthenware Olla that has been covered with a mosaic of Pre-Historic Anasazi pottery shards. The Anasazi were ancient pueblo dwellers (circa 1000 BCE) and are considered to be the ancestors of the modern day Pueblo and Hopi peoples. The pot is signed on the bottom “S. Rouse.”

The pot is a wonderfully crude vessel with the pottery shards adhered with some sort of cement or grout; around the bottom inside the foot there is also a very old application of a rubber cement bead for reinforcement. The pot was hand made in it’s entirety by an enthusiast of the day, in the full spirit of the DIY Arts and Crafts ethos. It is an amazing piece which combines the mystery and gravitas of this ancient civilization with the hands-on aesthetics of the A & C movement, which coincided with the age of discovery when Americans and Europeans were beginning to explore and appreciate First Nations culture. The pot remains in very good, strong condition, with the expected roughness of its nature.
