It’s time for our series, Vintage Picks of the Week! We scour the internet looking for just the right piece of vintage to add to our decor, and include ideas on how we think these pieces could be used.
The Picks this week are brought to you by Dot at Attic and Barn Treasures. I have an affection for pottery. The warmth and earthiness of pottery pieces seem so calming to me. I hope you enjoy my picks this week!
Hopi Pueblo Polychrome Bowl
What I Like About It: The traditional design of this bowl is the attraction. Having a purposed item survive through the years adds to its attraction.
How I Would Use It: This bowl would be at the center of my collection. On a tilted stand to show off the design and surrounded by miniature pottery on a shelf in my hutch for all to adore!
Mojave Indian Effigy Vessel c.1880’s
What I Like About It: The artistic design not only of the pottery itself but of the hand painted decoration gives this piece a sort of whimsical feel. The “face” has an otherworldly feel which makes it all the more special.
How I Would Use It: I think this would have to live on a shelf in my kitchen. I wonder how it would look with herbs in the spouts? Fun don’t you think!
Acoma Pueblo Jar by Lucy M. Lewis
What I Like About It: Another gorgeous piece with traditional geometric shapes. I love the small size and deep colors.
How I Would Use It: The small size gives this piece the ability to be displayed just about anywhere. I would love to use this to hold small jewelry items such as earrings or finger rings.
