ALABAMA COUSHATTA INDIAN POTTERY - SIGNED by ARTIST
- Source: eBay
POT IS IN MINT CONDITION. NO CHIPS OR CRACKS.This auction is for an ALABAMA COUSHATTA INDIAN POTTERY piece. The reservation of the Alabama Coushatta Indian tribe of Texas is in the Big Thicket near Livingston, Texas in Polk County. In the 1980s a renowned Texas artist in Lexington, Texas took on the project of teaching the craft of pottery to the Indians on the reservation as an added craft for their tourist shop. I believe it was a short-lived project because all of the pots I've ever found, which are very few, are marked 1980. This one-of-a-kind mint Native American pot is glazed and has the date and potter's name etched on the bottom. It reads Alabama Coushatta Tribes K.B. MFB 5/5/80. T his pot is 3 3/4" in height and 15" in circumference around the widest area of the pot.
