DALLAS, TX.- A San Ildefonso etched redware jar by famed potter Tony Da took top lot honors Nov. 10 when it brought $32,500 in Heritage’s American Indian Art Signature® Auction. Bidders recognized the value in a trio of Sioux beaded hide objects and the work of several contemporary potters.

Delia Sullivan, American Indian Art Specialist at Heritage, said the auction recorded a 96% sell-through rate due to spirited bidding between new buyers.

Pottery collectors drove strong prices for a circa 1975 Santa Clara carved blackware jar, representing a remarkable collaboration between famed potters Mela Tafoya and Margaret Tafoya and Chief Foggy Bird, which sold for $6,875 while a circa 2000 Santa Clara carved buffware jar made by Nathan Youngblood sold for $6,875. A circa 1975 Santa Clara redware wedding vase by Margaret Tafoya sold for $5,468.75.
