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.

“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.”
