Nellie Bica (1905-1998) - Zuni Polychrome Wedding Vase with Frog and Tadpole Designs c. 1950s, 9" x 6.5" (P3060)
- Circa: 1950s
- Size: 9'' x 6.5''
This piece is in very good condition; there is some surface wear and some chips to the bottom. Signed "NB Zuni". Acquired from a private collection in Washington. 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.
