Description

  • Authentic Native American
  • Hand Etched Color Bands
  • Genuine Horsehair Pottery

This wedding vase is a high-quality piece of authentic Native American, Navajo pottery. Navajo horsehair pottery has the traditional color bands and uses real horsehair during the firing process to decorate the rustic vase. 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 pot and yields the famous look that collectors enjoy. Each piece is unique; no two are exactly alike.

The wedding vase is a very special part of American Indian culture. The parents of a couple to be married will make or purchase a wedding vase for the couple. The vase will be used during the ceremony and then kept for the rest of their lives as a symbol of the love and unity they share. This piece would be perfect for any southwest style, western or cabin decor. It would also make a special gift.

Measures approximately 4" wide, 5" tall.

Authentic Native American, Tribe: Navajo, Artist: Cecilia Benally
