SEE EACH PHOTO FOR PRICE
|All twelve of the stone and shell Pre-Columbian artifacts individually illustrated and priced in this group (TEH.F47.1-11 and TEH.F50.3) were taken out of a shadow-box frame assembled by the late Chester Howard, founder of the Colorado Mineral Society. Howard marked the frame with the word ‘Guerrero’. Included in the group are Mezcala anthropomorphic stone figures, a couple of shell pieces of jewelry (these may be Colima in origin), and three individual greenstone ear flares. Each photo first shows the inventory number of the illustrated piece in brackets, followed by a brief description of type. Next comes the cultural horizon followed by the age of the piece. Its dimension is given along with a brief description of the material. A note on condition is followed by the price. We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be handling many more diverse items from this great collection including: Native American textiles, beadwork, pottery; Pre-Columbian pottery, artifacts, beads, figurines; some 375 Hacienda tokens; a great assortment of picturesque and decorative artifact frames that Howard had professionally constructed to house many of his treasures; and much more. Select or ask any question by referring first to the Trocadero Item Number on this page, and then to our Inventory Number shown on the given photograph. Each item purchased from this page comes with a small display card, a map of Mexico highlighting the Mezcala area, a biographical write-up about Chester Howard, and our certificate guaranteeing authenticity.
