This petite ceramic vessel was made by an artisan of the Chupícuaro culture, which was settled in Guanajuanto, Mexico from 500 BC - 300 AD. Exhibiting a rich patina, the bowl's surface is painted in a striped pattern with slips of buff and red clay. Hand-formed using a coil method, the vessel nonetheless has a balanced symmetry, with a rounded form that tapered at the mouth. Although the precise date of the piece is unknown, this petite vessel remains an exquisite example 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.”
