This is an exquisite jar is larger than Caroline usually makes. It is a traditionally coiled jar which has been hand burnished to a beautiful high gloss shine. The deeply carefully carved zigzag pattern enhances the matte finish of the area surrounding the top portion of the jar. The soft color of the clay shows off the elegance of the inlaid turquoise and gold beads surrounding the neck of the jar. This jar is perfection!
