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.

“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.”
