This little jar is a beautiful example of Mesoamerican pottery, decorated with red and white slip clay in the style of Chupícuaro ware. The olla vessel has a globular body with a rounded base, constricted neck, and slightly flared lip. The exterior is decorated with a diamond pattern around the body and vertical stripes along the neck. Smoke residue from firing darken the exterior and add beautiful asymmetry to the geometric decoration. Aged with a rich patina and pitted wear, this petite olla is an exquisite example of Pre-Columbian artistry.

What They're Saying

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
