Sporting a nose ring, complex ear ornaments, armlets, and an open mouth that would seem to indicate a 'singing' drummer, this seated polychrome figure (CLP 33) is attributed to the Nayarit of West Mexico, Ixtlan del Rio style, dating c.100 B.C. to 300 A.D. Just TL-tested by the Ralf Kotalla Lab in Hamburg, Germany, it has been determined to be 1800 years old (+ or - 300) years...

The ovoid Pre-Columbian gold nose ornaments in this group (93.303CHD, 93.303DHD, 93.305BHD, MAX 72, 74, 76 and 79) are all from the Salinar culture of Peru dating c.400-200BC. Made from hammered sheet gold, each tests approximately 18K using calibrated needle and acids from a jeweler’s gold testing kit. The ornaments were then formed by stone-cutting them out of the relatively thin alloyed precious metal. The ornaments in this interesting group are similar, but none are identical...

Immense might be a good word to describe this large Precolumbian bold eagle pendant (H4985). Attributed to the Veraguas horizon of Panama, c.500-1200AD, the bird represents the powerful harpy eagle, once a prevalent and revered bird in Central and South America. Weighing 154 grams (6 ounces!) and measuring 6 3/8” from wing tip to wing tip, the bird tests out at about 14K gold using a jeweler’s streak plate and calibrated acids...

The finely detailed and interesting design on the beveled under side of this 3" tall and 4 3/8" wide silver vessel (MAB 224) depicts the repeated image of a seated Peruvian lord drinking from a cup, and standing birds around its cone-shaped stem. Attributed to the Lambayeque (or Sican) culture of north coastal Peru and successors to the Moche, the cup is dated c.800-1350AD. In overall good condition with interior encrustation and some metal loss (on a 1-10 scale, I'd grade it a 7-8), its outer ...

$1,350.00
This incredibly well preserved set of Pre-Columbian wood ear plugs (LFG442), on which the geometrically decorated shell and dark greenstone elements are each held in place with an almost invisible touch of contemporary glue, is attributed to the Moche horizon of Peru, c.100-800AD. Not wearable today due to the fragile nature of the wood that has dried and shrunk through the many centuries of entombment, there are certainly few other such pairs that have survived this well. Measuring one inch fro...

10 ½” in height and modeled in the round, this stone carving (AXH1462) was found in Vera Cruz and was attributed by its finder, the late Dr. Allen Heflin, to the Huasteca dating c.900-1300AD. With somewhat muted features, resulting both from the fashion in which it was made and from subsequent weathering, the crested head may be a representation of the ever-popular wind god. Made from indurated, iron-stained volcaniclastic material, it is in overall very good condition with no significant dam...

From the Sinu horizon of Colombia and dating c.400-1600AD, each of the 30 carved shell pendants or beads in this group (94.183HD) have been reinforced with a custom silver brace to protect it from damage. Ranging in length from 2 ¾” to 3 5/8”, all 30 beads could be arranged on a necklace, or used individually or in small groups in pendant arrays, the patterns of which are limited only by the beader’s imagination. Note silver bale for stringing in the side view of one of the pendants. In v...
