Very unusual bowl with a painted back interior......Experts think is from the Zuni tribe.....Crushed turquoise exterior embellished with Antler horn fragments, heishi, and feathers..I cannot find a signature however it certainly looks special .We are not experts in this field and will leave an opinion to others.....Estate purchase. A striking piece of Native American Style Art.........Latest information [ From a dealer in Native American Art ] that it is a fetish bowl and Zuni. The bowls were used to store Fetishes and the bowl was a home for them and contained not only fetishes but food for them. Bowl is 8 1/4 inches wide...........3 3/4 high........10 inches total width [ approx ].
