Pueblo Ruins

Jesse W. Fewkes - 1904

The Inspiration For Clifton IndianWare

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint
Two things we're very fond of are: Clifton Indian Ware and American Archaeology.  Finding the original for this book a few years ago,  we knew it had to be reprinted. 

When Jesse Fewkes published his findings at  these Arizona Pueblo ruins in 1904,  it was an instant hit.  One company designed an entire line of art pottery inspired by these wonderful  designs. This company was, of course, the Clifton Art Pottery of Newark New Jersey.  It's no coincidence that names like Homolobi, Chaves Pass and Four-Mile Ruin were used on the famous art pottery they produced starting in 1905 (the year after this book was published).  These archaeolgical sites have become household words to every Indianware afficianado and this book is the story behind the archaeological sites that inspired what many consider to be one of the most interesting American Art Pottery lines ever produced.

This soft cover book is 7-3/4" x 10-1/2", 195 pages (plus plates),  profusely illustrated with 122 illustrations and 72  plates of which 35 are in full color.  $24.95
