Exhibiting a rich patina, this petite blackware vessel shows many telltale signs of Pre-Columbian pottery. Speckled with imperfections, the vessel's darkened surface was achieved by applying a mineral-rich slip for a monochrome finish that designates the vessel as an everyday object. The slip layer was then etched to create the simple geometric pattern on the jar's rounded shoulders. Although the precise date of the piece is unknown, the petite vessel remains an exquisite example of Indigenous American 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.”
