If you are a collector or are interested in specific types of art, then you know how important it is to get authentic pieces. You don’t want to pay a lot of money for something that isn’t even genuine. For Native American pottery, there are specific things you can look for to ensure you are getting a piece created by a true Native of America. Before buying anything, you need to check if there is a signature on the piece.
If there is a signature on the piece, you can rest assured that it is not authentic Native American pottery. American Indians have not signed their works of art and people who truly collect works of art know this. This is the easiest thing to spot. The next thing you need to look out for is perfection. If the piece looks very new and has no flaws, it probably isn’t real. The surviving pieces may be in good condition, but if there isn’t a scratch or chip in the paint, you probably don’t have a real piece.
Beyond the aforementioned two signs that you are dealing with Native American pottery replicas, what else can you look for? The only other way to determine if you have a genuine piece before bringing it to someone for evaluation is to have a decent understanding of the tribe that supposedly created the piece. If you’re dealing with Navajo Indians, for example, you wouldn’t expect to see the same horseback motifs that were common with Cherokee Indians.
So while you can really enjoy Native American pottery and art regardless of whether they are real or authentic or not, it definitely helps to be able to know whether or not you should invest a lot of money in a piece. These simple steps will make it easy to select the right types of art for your home, and you will never have to worry about buying something fraudulent if you are careful.
