Seller: bremaley (471) 100%, Location: Tucson, Arizona, Ships to: US, Item: 291932908771 A Chimu baby parrot vessel in the traditional Chimu blackware style. This was in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum in New York. It was donated to the museum in 1936. The museum considered it to be a probable early 20th century reproduction, owing to it appearing ‘hand-modeled’. In my opinion, it looks very much like it came from a two-part mold, and there appear to be earth deposits on the surface. It is well-modeled, with small eyes with raised rims, and a down-turned bill. There is surface burnishing visible overall; it is especially visible on the spout and parrot head. The museum number is painted in red on the bottom (36.645). Dimensions: 2 5/8” H x 3” L x 1 1/2” 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. Even though this possibly isn’t an authentic Chimu piece, it is still an excellent reproduction that is itself 80 years old and has a distinct history.
