This charming vase was handmade from red clay by Sioux Indians in the 1960s. The signature carved into the bottom of this small vase indicates that it was made by M. Hastings, Sr. of the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. Glazed in its interior, the vase has a black matte finish exterior into which four tribal signs have been carved, with each symbol representing one of the four sacred directions of the Sioux Nation. Accompany the vase is a small double-sided printer sheet that describes Sioux pottery and crafts. This dainty vase is in great vintage condition, being free of chips, cracks or repairs.
This lovely household item would make a wonderful addition to any collection of Native American artifacts as well as a great conversation piece.
