  •  This vessel's characteristics reveal hallmarks of the art-pottery produced by famed Oaxacan artisan "Dona Rosa" (Dona Rosa Real de Mateo Nieto of San Bartolo Coyotepec). Her pieces are highly prized by collectors! ... (Many of the Dona Rosa Workshop  artworks are found to be unsigned, but retain their value.) ... The Barro Negro vessel offered above reveals the distinctive floral and leaf shapes, and patterning in the clay itself, for which the Dona Rosa Workshop is known.
    • NOTE:  Most Oaxaca (Barro Negro) black-clay pottery appears only in the monochrome, dusky clay of its origins. ... The Folk-Art pottery offered above is quite unusual in its two tones: dusky black and gleaming coppery-gold. ...
