Beautiful Blackware Nappy Hand Thrown Candle Holder
$30.00 plus shipping
This is a really wonderful piece of blackware hand thrown pottery probably made by a Native American potter. It looks very much like Bigmeat Cherokee, but I can't make out the mark on the bottom. It is a nappy style holder with open cut work on the bowl. The handle, upper edge and rim have a wonderful hand rubbed patina to them. It measures 2 and 7/8 inches tall and 5 inches wide at the widest point. The only damage is a small surface chip on the side of the rim and a small flake off the patina on the top hole. This looks like a very well made quality crafted piece. I don't know the age or maker, it was an auction piece.
