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. Surface enriched above 14K in ancient days through the depletion...

The 20-22K gold and the quartz beads were originally found in the mid-20th century at the famed location known as “El Bolo”, which is located near the site of Cali, Colombia. Broadly attributed to the early Calima-San Augustine style dating c.100BC – 400 AD, the legally obtained beads were eventually professionally incorporated into this end-to-end 20” necklace (DXC.1) using contemporary wire and locking gold clasp.

This fiercely expressive ancient lion's head doorknocker (MAB 1), once mounted on a Roman patrician's entryway in Syria and dated c.1st Century A.D., was obviously designed to signify the power and importance of the home's head occupant! A beautifully molded and complete bronze assemblage with movable ring, it measures 7 1/4" across and weighs 3 pounds. Still retaining its residual surface mineralization from centuries of burial, it could easily serve as the centerpiece of any ancient Roman disp...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$7,500.00
Unmistakably of the Sinu style, this matched pair of heavy gold earrings (103.42HD) is from the Gulf of Uruba area of Colombia and dates c.400-1600AD. Just over 2 ¾” in width and made in Precolumbian times using the cire perdue technique (lost wax casting), the earrings are in overall very good condition (one of them has been slightly bent at a corner and a few of the gold rings are cracked, but without any significant weakening of the piece). This spectacular set could be adapted for contemp...

HD ENTERPRISES, INC.
$7,500.00
This second ancient lion's head doorknocker (MAB 2) appears to be a companion piece to MAB 1. Both were probably mounted on the same Roman door in Syria around the 1st Century A.D. Undoubtedly designed to signify the power and importance of the home's owner, it is a beautifully molded and complete bronze assemblage but unlike the ring on MAB 1, the ring on MAB 2 no longer moves. Measuring 7 1/4" across, this doorknocker weighs 3 1/2 pounds, a little more than MAB 1. And It too still retains its ...

Made and cut out in 3” circles from 16-18K hammered sheet gold, this beautifully decorated pair (102.116HD) of matched Precolumbian bangles is attributed to the Chimu horizon of Peru, c.1000-1400AD. In excellent condition with some minor wrinkling and bending, the Precolumbian native goldsmith decorated the museum quality set by utilizing the repoussee technique.

$6,500.00
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. In overall good condition (I'd rank it at a grade 7 1/2 with 10 being the top) with a moderate amount of strong mangane...

This Pre-Colombian quartz bead necklace (MAJP.1002) has the largest gold nose ring of its kind we’ve ever seen! Strung on contemporary and multi-strands of wrapped steel wire with gold clasp, the previous owner must have worn it with great pride. The beads and the nose ring, a lost wax cast weighing about 2.4 oz of high karat gold, are all from the Tairona horizon of Colombia dating c.1000-1500AD. Brought into the US legally in the mid-20th Century by K. Klassen, former collector and dealer, t...

Measuring 3 13/16" in length and 1 5/16" at its widest, this Paleo-Indian Clovis Point (RXB.6) dates c.18,000-10,600 B.P. and is the second top quality artifact we are offering from the Rhonda Beck collection. With a paper tag marked "Obion Co., TN" (located in the extreme northwest county of the state), this black beauty exhibits a subtle brownish-red variegation on its tagged side.

This great pair of Paleo Clovis Points (RLK.7 and RLK.8), dating c.13,000 – 10,000 BP, was purchased by the current owner from the late Calvin Howard, known world-wide for his accuracy in artifact authentication. Measuring 3 7/16” and 3 13/16” in length, the writer grades both of the points at a 9+ grade with no significant chips or dings. Made from the attractive Payson chert, which is found in outcrop on the east side of the Mississippi River in Adams County, Illinois, one point comes wi...
