Published in "The Pottery of Acoma Pueblo, Part Two: Acoma Polychrome (c 1840-present)" by Dwight P. Lanmon and Francis H. Harlow, American Indian Art Magazine, Winter 2012, p. 73, fig. 11; Lanmon and Harlow, The Pottery of Acoma Pueblo (2013), fig. 24.13.

Gladys Pacquin, a potter at Laguna Pueblo, made several copies of this jar. One is in the collection of the Indian Arts Research Center of the School of American Research in Santa Fe, NM.

“The jar illustrated in figure 24.13 has an unusual design of brown and orange split arcs oscillating around the sides. It has no known parallel for its date, although a jar dating from the 1860s has a related design (fig. 9.30). When this jar belonged to the dealer (and art potter) Rick Dillingham, he showed it to Gladys Pacquin, a potter at Laguna Pueblo, who has since made several copies of it. An example is in the collection of the Indian Arts Research Center of the SAR (SAR.1994-4-533).” (from Lanmon and Harlow, The Pottery of Acoma Pueblo [2013], fig. 24.13)
