Genuine Horsehair Pottery-Navajo Miniature Turtle 2.75" (34bc254)
This horsehair turtle figurine is a high-quality piece of authentic Native American, Navajo pottery and uses real horsehair during the firing process to decorate the rustic figure.
The artist throws the pieces of horsehair onto the pottery, at just the right time, to cause it to stick and melt into the piece. This causes a permanent application of the horsehair to the object and yields the famous look that collectors appreciate.
Each piece is unique, no two are exactly alike. This hand etched turtle would be perfect for any southwest style, western or cabin decor. It would also make a special gift.
Actual turtle is shown, measures approximately 2.75" long, 1.25" tall.
Authentic Native American, Tribe: Navajo, Artist: Safarina Benally
