This pot has an eagle design, which was one of the favorites of Elva.  Considering she has been gone for over 30 years,  there are not that many of her pots on the market.  This pot has been in a private collection, and while it has been loved, it does show some signs of wear.  The is some paint rubbing, so look carefully at the photos.  

Elva  (1926 - 1985) was born in the Corn Clan house where her grandmother, Nampeyo, resided.  She was the daughter of Fannie Nampeyo and Vinton Polacca.  She started learning to make pots at 11 years old. 

Condition: Some paint rubbing - no cracks or chips
