Authentic Caddo Wilder Engraved Bottle 1400-1650 AD:
I am a major collector of Caddo and Mississippian Pottery. I have over 50 pieces and its time for me to thin down my pieces. Most of my collection have been in other major collections and museums. Well documented and publicized.
My desire is to reduce my collection so that I can concentrate on more unique pieces. I am not a re seller or a dealer. These pieces have been in my personal collection for many years.
This piece is an Authentic Caddo Wilder Engraved Bottle from Northeast Texas. I bought this one a few years ago from the Museum of Native American Art and is my favorite. Its been featured in the "Kent and Jonnie Westbrook Collection" figure 1241, page 201. Its ex-Westbrook and David Bogle Collections and has been featured for many years at the Museum of Native American Art.
There is a slight pressure crack that has been professionallyrestored as can be seen in the pictures. This is my largest piece as you can see from my group picture. The surface is highly polished with red ocre still visible in the engraved lines. Its a gorgeousmuseum quality piece.
