Immense might be a good word to describe this large Precolumbian bold eagle pendant (H4985).

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.

$1,500.00
This 9 7/8" tall PROFESSOR B. E.

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...
