This jar is a very early and rare example of Nampeyo's work. it was Identified as Tusayan Revival Style (Tusuyan designs), Sikyatki shape, ca 1895, by Allan Cooke and Ed Wade in private correspondence with Dwight Lanmon.

Nampeyo is renowned for reviving Sikyatki-shaped pottery, having become familiar with this form from excavations by archaeologists. Lesou (her husband) helped during these excavations.
