Exhibiting a rich patina and a beautifully irregular pattern of pitted wear, this petite redware olla vessel shows many telltale signs of Pre-Columbian pottery. The vessel has a globular form with a rounded base, constricted neck, and flattened rim. The warm red-orange color was achieved by applying a mineral-rich slip for a monochrome finish. Although the precise date of the piece is unknown, this petite vessel remains an exquisite example of Pre-Columbian artistry.

Minor wear to slip finish and chips to rim.
