Navajo Etched Horsehair Wedding Vase 9" -Bearpaw (35bc103)
- Authentic Native American
- Hand Etched Color Bands
- Genuine Horse Hair Pottery
This wedding vase is a high quality piece of authentic Native American, Navajo pottery. This unique piece of 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 buyers enjoy. Each piece is unique, no two are 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 their love and unity. This piece would be perfect for any southwest style, western décor or cabin. It would also make a great special gift.
Measures approximately 5" wide, 9" tall.
