The 12 Precolumbian gold nose ornaments in this group (93.303C-DHD, 93.305BHD, MAX 59, 62, 66, 71, 72, 74, 77, 78 and 79) are all from the Salinar culture of Peru dating c.400-200BC.

The ornaments in this interesting group are similar, but none are identical...

This group of six stone artifacts (PJH1-6) is being sold as a lot. From the international collection of Dr. Peter Hilton, the selection represents a variety of stone and type. From the early days of Peter’s collecting, he did not at that time keep detailed records concerning provenance or type of each of the pieces. The descriptions (without specific provenance in most cases) are thus my best guesses based upon rock type and morphology...

The world-renowned Dr. Allen Heflin collection contained one of the largest assortments of Pre-Columbian ceramic pipes seen on the market in recent years. He found this one (AXH89) at the Aztec site of Cuautitlan, Mexico in July 1960 (so-marked on the bottom of the stem in black ink). An impressive 13” in length, with a 6 ½” tall bowl, the pipe was found in four pieces that were later glued together without any new material or paint being added to the pipe...

Written on a folded 8 ¼” x 10 ½” sheet watermarked LA CROIX FIBERS and signed by Rob. C. Winthrop, this personal letter (89.590HD) is rather difficult to read, so its contents are not here attempted. Addressed from 90 Marlborough St., on Friday Eve, 5 April, 1898, the letter is in excellent condition with an embossed ‘W’ at the upper left, there are two light marks from being pasted into an album.

This almost perfect Pre-Columbian polychrome basket (LFG412) is attributed to the Tiahuanacan Period of highland Bolivia, c.400-1200AD. Measuring 6” across, and approximately 3 ½” in height, the four top coils down from the basket’s rim are woven with two different alternating colors of reed in a fashion that defines a simple geometric pattern around the upper part of the body. The basket reed is in overall very good condition with a few areas of light wear, a minor number of non-weakenin...

This highly burnished red ware melon jar (CLP 1) is one of my favorite items from Claudia Proto's collection of West Mexican Pre-Columbian art. 8" wide and 6 1/4" tall, it simply bubbles with fun and style in spite of the its obviously damaged condition ( in our opinion, it still deserves a quality rank of '7', with 10 being the tops). Assigned to the Colima horizon dating c,100-300AD, it suffers a bruised nose and a rim that is missing a couple of chunks with some glue to hold another in place...

Possibly a representation of the wind god, this 9” tall stone sculpture (AXH1461B) is from the Dr. Allen Heflin collection. Marked on the back on a white ink panel is Heflin’s note that it was found in Vera Cruz, Mexico. Though he didn’t attribute it to a specific group, it is thought to be Huasteca in origin, dating c.900-1300AD. Made from dense volcaniclastic stone, the figure from the front depicts a crested, open-mouthed face. When examined from the side or top, there’s an apparent s...

Found by the late Dr. Allen Heflin in the mid-20th century at the Aztec island city site of Xico in the Valley of Mexico, these were sold to a Colorado collector who has purchased a number of items from Heflin’s collection since we acquired it. The pieces are being offered as consigned items from that former collector, now selling off his collection. The seated dark gray stone figure represents the Old Fire God (H...
