Offered for auction is a piece of Clifton Four Mile Pottery Ruin, Arizona. The pot has the impressed Clifton name and the incised Clifton logo. Four Mile Ruin, Arizona is incised on the side bottom edge with the number 160 impressed on the opposite side, please see photos.

The Clifton Indianware line was modeled after ancient Hopi and surrounding Indian tribe pottery, using the polychrome style.

The interior of the pot is glazed a glossy dark brownish black shade. The exterior Indian designs in black against the red clay background is striking and nicely suited to the pleasing shape.

The vase I am offfering is in very nice condition. T is typical surface wear from years of being handled and cleaned. T are some minor scuffs and some black rub on the base ring. I have taken many photos of the exterior surface to show condition. Please email us if you have any other questions.

T are NO chips, cracks, hairlines or repairs. I see no visible crazing under magnification.

Dimensions of the piece are 5 1/4" T x 8" W. The rim is 2 1/2" in diameter.

This is a beautiful example of the influence the west had on the original potter, William Long, before he traveled east from Denver and opened the Clifton Pottery in Newark, NJ.
