Seller: bremaley (460) 100%, Location: Tucson, Arizona, Ships to: US, Item: 291932908555 A Chimu llama with bridle vessel in the traditional Chimu blackware style. This was in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum in New York. It was purchased by the museum in 1937 from the New York Historical Society. It is an authentic Chimu piece from Peru, and dates ca. 1100-1400 AD. It has nicely modeled facial details, with a clearly visible bridle molded in relief. It appears to have been made in a two-part mold, as was a common practice with the Chimu. There are traces of surface burnishing overall, but it has a rougher texture and less burnishing than on other examples I have had. The vessel has a round bottom and won’t ‘sit up’ on it’s own (it was supported from underneath the cloth for the photograph). There are three chips to the spout and one to the nose, but they do not detract from the overall appearance. The museum number is painted in red on the bottom (37.2551.PA). Dimensions: 4 1/4” H x 4” L x 2 3/4” W. It was deaccessioned from the Brooklyn Museum’s collection in 2006, and sold by Skinner Auctioneers in 2007. I purchased it at Malter Galleries in Los Angeles in November of 2007, and it’s been in my collection since then. I confirmed all of the information in 2008 with the curator for Arts of the Americas at the Brooklyn Museum. Material: Pottery, Provenance: Ownership History Available
