Item Details

Information:

  • Material: Pottery






Here is a dramatic pottery vessel in the form of a tightly coiled serpent, the pointed head

indicative of a rattlesnake, the tail in the form of a rising spout.



This fine, red-on-buff vessel is 6" (15cm) L. x 4.5" (11.5cm )W. x 5.5" (14cm ) H.

with ample manganese distribution attesting to prolonged interment.


Despite an insignificant chip restoration on the base not visible unless the vessel is turned upside down,

this rare and beautiful artwork is in

excellent overall condition.

Photobucket
This seller has been a conscientious collector and dedicated scholar of New World antiquities for over a half-century.
He has complied with UNESCO, federal/local legislation and never consciously acquired, traded in or sold illicitly recovered antiquities.


CAVEAT EMPTOR: The prospective buyer is advised to acquire New World antiquities ONLY from reputable Pre-Columbian Art specialists
and pay a legitimate price for authentic antiquities with legal provenance and bona-fide guarantees of authenticity. Keep in mind that
a “Certificate of Authenticity” is only as valid as the issuer’s credentials and expertise. Unrealistically low prices for forgeries,
reproductions, illegal or mis-attributed artifacts offered by uninformed or venal vendors are ultimately not bargains at all.
