Navajo Indian Horse Hair Pottery Turtle 4.25" (3bc398)
This horse hair figurine is a high quality piece of authentic Native American, Navajo pottery and uses real horse hair during the firing process to decorate the rustic figure. The artist throws the pieces of horse hair 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 horse hair 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 piece is shown, measures approximately 4.25" long, 2" tall..
