Item:163893392353Never been listed: Pre Columbian, H2O2 Tested, Pottery, Central American, Costa Rican, Early/Late Post Classic 1000-1550 AD, Two Tlaloc effigy polychrome vessels, large vessel is 1617 grams, 11 1/2 inches in height, 9 inches in bowl width, 5 inches in rim diameter, 6 3/4 inch foot diameter, during my inspection I noted a chip on the rim of the foot, 2-3 M.D.C's, (which will be stabilized before shipping), and a few surface (paint) chips. The small vessel is 558 grams in weight, 6 7/8 inches in height, 5 inches in bowl width, 3 3/8 inches in rim diameter, 4 inches in foot diameter, with no missing pieces, chips, stress cracks, moisture deficiency cracks (MDC), breaks and/or repairs, I did note a 2 mm chip located on the rim, it is barely noticeable, I also noted on the small vessel strange divots in a few areas. All photos were taken by the seller (and never substituted), utilizing a Canon digital camera, and a laboratory quality AmScope trinocular stereo microscope, photos 1 thru 6 were shot with the Canon, they document the subject artifacts in various positions. Photos 7 thru 12 were shot with the AmScope, they document the vessels clay/paste composition, ancient pigment, low temperature firing marks, various mineral deposits, including earthly and manganese, image 12 reflects the manganese test. North American shipping: I use the services of USPS/Canada Post tracked, with insurance and expedited service. All artifacts are double boxed, packed with extreme care using the best materials money can buy. If my final shipping cost is higher than collected amount, I will take care of that, within reason, surplus funds will be returned, I combine shipping and do not seek to profit from said. My artifacts have been sold to art gallery owners in New York and Denver, and to residents of Switzerland, Germany, Britain, France, Austria, Italy, Russia, and a few other countries. International shipping, (Europe), is quite costly, as insurance, tracking and proper packing is not negotiable. As always, I welcome question(s) and/or comments, in some cases please allow up to 48 hours for a response. Seller Comment: I diligently inspected every square inch of both artifacts, and have noted the "tells" of authenticity, overall everything is correct, from the ancient pigment to the low temperature firing marks, manganese and moisture tests, I have no doubt that both are authentic. From my collection, thank you for your interest.Material:pottery, Provenance:from my collection, I know exactly where..
