With a worn, glossy finish, this petite orangeware bowl is a wonderful example of Maya pottery. Coated in a layer of clay slip for a monochrome finish, the delicate bowl is bare of decoration save for a simple raised band along the lip. Centuries of use have speckled the vessel with imperfections, adding rich character to its elegant form. Beautifully hand-sculpted with balanced proportions and thin walls, this bowl is an exquisite display of Pre-Columbian artistry.

“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.”
