This large, 13” wide prehistoric Indian bowl (GLC307) was found in New Mexico, identified as a Mimbres Black-on-White, dating c.975-1150AD, and is attributed to the Mogollon group. The prominent hourglass design that bisects the bowl is perforated by a typical Mimbres ‘kill’ hole. From the estate and personal collection of the late Gene Lang of Denver, he put the bowl together with minor repaint. The rim has three areas of restoration, the outside surface of which were never finished leavi...

Richard Wise, noted northeastern goldsmith and author of the recent SECRETS OF THE GEM TRADE, made this fine 14K gold custom ring (96.1107HD) centered with a late 19th to early 20th century bloodstone intaglio depicting either Victory (note the wings) or possibly Neptune (note the trident and what appears to be a couple of fish in his left hand).

Not exactly the same, but probably once hanging from the same necklace, this closely matched pair of 2 3/8” tall figural pendants (TFX117) are attributed to the Veraguas horizon of Panama, dating c.500-1200AD. The figures, representing shamans wearing bat god masks, each hold a large tumi shaped blade in one hand, and what appears to be a sling in the other. Lost wax cast in the high copper, low gold alloy known as tumbaga, the figures were subsequently surface enriched through the depletion g...

$29,500.00
Weighing over 55 grams and measuring 3 ¼” in height, this wonderfully crafted anthropomorphic 20-22K gold image (H4154) is said to represent a shaman. Attributed to the Veraguas horizon in Panama, c.500-1200AD, it is one of three different available images that can be put in a row to depict the transformation sequence of shaman to his animal form, in this case a caiman, the South American crocodile. With a bale attached to the recessed back, this powerful piece can be worn. You’ll seldom fi...

A wide 14” in diameter, and relatively deep 5” make this bowl (GL544) pretty tough to put on a narrow shelf! From the collection of the late Gene Lang of Denver, he typed the bowl as a Gila Redware dating c.1300-1350+ and attributed it to the Salado group. Lang also did the restoration on this large piece, gluing it together and filling in and then painting the cracks. The interior of the bowl is burnished black (commonly called ‘smudged’). Without specific provenance, but originally fro...
