Seller: smallpleasuresfarm (3,677) 100%, Location: Eureka Springs, Arkansas, Ships to: US, Item: 122243298726 We are listing this very uniquely shaped and nicely decorated piece of Pre-Columbian Mexican pottery. I am certainly not an expert in this area, but I have seen an identical piece online that was identified as being a multi-lobed olla or pot from the Mixtec/Tarascan Culture of Western Mexico during the 500-800 AD period. I acquired this piece (along with some other equally old pots) from a very old antiquarian (finding them in the piles of old things in his dark and dusty shop was an adventure in itself), and he thought it might have come from an even older culture in the Chupicuaro area, but I cannot find any examples of their works like this. The pot does still have dirt on its inside bottom, so it had likely been buried and dug up in the distant past. It has a wonderfully lobed body and elegant neck, is decorated with subtle black circles and ocher paint, and makes a very interesting piece on display. It is 4.75 inches tall, 5.5 inches at its widest point, very uniquely shaped, nicely colored and decorated, and it is in very good overall condition (a chip off the rim - see the last picture). Please view the closeup pictures and judge for yourself. A wonderful old piece of Pre-Columbian Mexican pottery. We can currently only accept bids on this from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Shipping to the United Kingdom and Canada will be charged at cost. Payment must be made by Paypal within three days of the auction ending.
