Native American Pot Found in a Virginia Cave


1 in stock


This is a woodland era decorated clay pot which was found in a cave along the New River in Virginia. It was found in the 1930’s and was in the museum in Saltville, Virginia. Afterwards, it was acquired by Gordon Barlow, who in turn sold it to me. It’s fully intact and is in wonderful shape for its age.  It has protruding spikes on the outside all the way around the pot. It may have been a ceremonial type pot, hence it being left in a cave for some religious or ceremonial reason.  I believe it was found with another larger pot, but unfortunately the two became separated.

A great piece of Virginia pre-history.
