Additional Information

  • Circa: 1984
  • Size: 10.5'' x 6.75''
This pottery is in near excellent condition, with some minor surface wear at the top, and at the base. Signed "Helen Shupla, Santa Clara Pueblo, 4-23-84". The wedding vase symbolizes the sanctity of marriage in the ceremony. One spout on the wedding vase represents the husband; the other, the wife. The handle in the middle of a wedding vase represents the unity that a husband and wife will achieve when they come together on their wedding day. The space between the handle and the two spouts is a representation of the couples’ circle of life. The owner has authorized us to lower the price from $8,800 to $5,300. This is a wonderful collecting opportunity. Acquired from a private collection in New Mexico.
