This small olla jar is a beautiful example of Mesoamerican pottery, decorated with red, white, and orange slip in the style of Chupícuaro ware. The wide, globular body of the vessel has a lobed shape resembling a squash or cactus, accentuated by contrasting vertical stripes. The olla has a narrow opening with a short, constricted neck and two strap handles at the shoulder. Beautifully aged with a rich patina and pitted wear, this petite olla is an exquisite example of Pre-Columbian artistry.

Minor wear to slip finish and chips to rim.

“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.”
