This auction is for a vintage beautiful art pottery vase made at the Kanyengeh Pottery of the Six Nations Reserve. During the 1960s, residents of the reserve began to re-discover the lost art of pottery making, as practiced by the Iroquois for 3000 years before the arrival of Europeans. Along with other residents of the reserve, they established Kanyengeh Pottery and produced a type of traditional brown wash pottery by hand that came to be known as "Mohawk Pottery". The underside of this piece is signed "SN" within a featd urn and also with the names Leigh & Hubert - this is the signature of the potterse initials. The vase is wonderfully constructed with the brown wash pottery overlay that is cut with diagonal, vertical and horizontal lines. The vase measures 5.25" in height and about 3.75" in diameter at its widest. Kanyengeh Pottery closed during the 1970s, so this dates sometimes to the 1960s or 70s - I would assume that output was not very high, so a piece of signed Kanyengeh is probably very difficult to come by. Also, I do believe that this is an earlier mark as the later ones were incised with the word "Kanyengeh Pottery". In excellent condition with no damage. This is a no reserve auction.
