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 surface has been polished and shows well. The cup comes with a small display card, a map showing the general area of origin, and our certificate guaranteeing authenticity. Select or ask any question by referring either to the Trocadero ITEM # or the STOCK # MAB 224 at the top of this page. NOTE: if you would like to view a large number of our various listings, and at the same time limit your browsing, try our ‘TWELVE different items on a single page format’ by simply spelling out the word TWELVE in the search box. That will quickly bring up all of our listings that have multiple, individually priced items on a page. And if you want to further refine the group, add one or two additional modifiers at the same time such as ‘Indian, Precolumbian, Stone, Pot, Gold, etc.’ Any item that has been sold will be so noted on its photograph.
