A vintage black on black pottery bowl by Isabel Pena and signed by her on the bottom with her first name. She was an early San Ildefonso potters.
Measures 4.75" tall and about 5.75" in diameter.
Here is some information I found on her:
Isabel Pena was a granddaughter of Cipriana Pena and a daughter of Tonita Pena (ca 1847-1910) who was known for making large storage vessels. Isabel was the wife of Pasqual Martinez. She was also the mother of noted potters Teresita Martinez and Petronella Martinez. Her great-grandson, Elvis Torres continues to make pottery today.
The bowl has scratches and a couple places where the finish is worn. No chips or cracks.
