The concept of a seed pot goes back quite far into the history of the Native American Indians and was and still is used on the pueblos to protect their crop seeds from rodents, insects and mildew. There is a very small diameter hole in the top of the pot through which the seeds are dropped into the pot.
The antique pot with decoration is circa 1910 - artist unknown - origin determined to be the San Ildefonso Pueblo in NM.
The wall behind the pots is an impressionistic rendering of aged plaster.
