Exhibiting a rich patina, this petite redware vessel shows many telltale signs of Pre-Columbian pottery. Speckled with imperfections, the vessel's warm red-orange coloration was achieved by applying a mineral-rich slip for a monochrome finish. Hand-formed using a coil method, the vessel nonetheless has thin walls and a balanced form, tapering gently at the mouth. An anthropomorphic face sits atop a subtle band ringing the vessel, exhibiting a mix of human and non-human features. 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.”
