Covered in a now beautifully worn red clay slip, this petite hand-formed vessel is an excavated pot of the Djenné people of the Inland Niger Delta of current-day Mali. With a history dating back to 200 BC, Djenné, also known as Jenne-jeno, was a highly sophisticated and prosperous civilization which reached its peak in the 9th century, stimulated by trade in iron, copper, gold, rice, and salt. Rope-like etchings encircle the base of the vessel's cinched neck, textured by stamped imprints and colored by a dark slip. Still in remarkable condition, this exquisite vessel reflects the skill of Djenné artisans, beautifully formed with graceful proportions.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
