  • Ancient Ceramic Snail Shaped Vessel, West Mexico, Jalisco (3290BLB) $435

    H: 4.75”  W: 2.75”  D: 1.75” | FREE SHIPPING

    This Protoclassic (circa 200BCE – 200CE) ceramic painted figurine of an ovoid snail was fashioned as a vessel with a wide large spout on top. Many early Jalisco ceramics were utilitarian and used for cooking, carrying water or storing seeds. The size and shape of this piece suggest it was made to hold liquids. Pieces like this were often decorated with applied painted designs that faded because they were not fired after painting. In contrast to the rest of Mesoamerica which had complex urban centers, areas of habitation in West Mexico were small, especially in the Colima Jalisco-Nayarit area. Because these areas had been abandoned for centuries, utilitarian objects like this were rarely found whole and required their fragments to be assembled and restored. This piece is in very good condition with cracks and paint losses and may have expected repairs at its spout.

  • Ancient Inca Ax Head, Indigenous Meso/South America/Peru (1866BAL) $525

    H: 4.25”  W: 3.75  D: 0.75” | FREE SHIPPING

    This strong, thick, substantial yet relatively light T-shaped Inca copper alloy bronze ax has considerable wear on one side. Scholars describe these pieces as a classic weapon of the Inca Empire centered in Cuzco, Peru. Bronze ax heads were a very valuable and versatile tool. Their wide T-like top made them tight and durable when secured to a thick wooden handle and their strength and thickness also made them a very useful chopping and digging tool. This one has a fine patina and is very worn on one side attesting to its age and use. It has no restorations or repairs.

    This 2-sided antique Bolivian religious document cover is lovingly decorated with hand-brocaded purple fabric with gold thread and embroidered floral designs within irregular curved decorative gold borders.
