This is a beautiful black-on-red bowl with a clear connection to Nampeyo's daughter Annie. It is hard to determine who made the bowl itself as Annie was making pots alongside her mother, Nampeyo, by 1900. Barbara Kramer discusses in her book how Nampeyo offered pots for sale that were made by her and also by Annie. The pots were not signed, as was the custom during this period.  [Barbara Kramer, Nampeyo and Her Pottery (University of NM Press, 1996), pp. 161-162]. As was the case with Nampeyo, Annie was also a very talented artist and potter.

Annie frequently made black on red pots. Her designs tended to be large central designs such as seen in this bowl.  While Nampeyo did make some pots that are black on red, they are infrequently found.
