Large Hopi Polychrome Open Bowl by Fannie Nampeyo

Steve Elmore Indian Art

This impressive large Hopi polychrome open bowl was made by Fannie Nampeyo in the 1920s, and sports Fred Harvey “Hopi Villages” stickers on the bottom with her name. Fannie Nampeyo was the most accomplished of Nampeyo’s three potting daughters, known for both her excellent molding and painting. This large bowl is well-molded with a rolled-in rim. The design fills the interior of the bowl, and has the bold black elements and delicate textured painting that Fannie’s work is known for. The bowl measures 4 ¼” height and 13 ¼” diameter, and is in excellent, original condition. Compare the design on this bowl to the bowl molded by Nampeyo and painted by Fannie, inventory number P4386:
