|This handsome, 8 1/8” tall orangeware cylinder vessel (RFM14) is decorated with diagonal flutes spiraling from a plain-banded top towards its fire-clouded and slightly calcified base. Found in the Tikal area of Guatemala many decades ago, the heavily potted vessel is in good condition with no restoration and moderate pinpoint flecking to the red slip. Attributed to the late Classic Maya, c.550-950AD, the jar was made with pinkish-tan clay and has a stripe of orange-red pigment ringing its inside top. From the local collection of one of the founders of the now abandoned Rocky Mountain Institute of Pre-Columbian Studies, the vessel comes with a small display card, a map of the Yucatan area highlighting the Tikal area, and our certificate guaranteeing authenticity. Don’t forget to watch for the additional pieces that will soon be listed under the prefix RFM from this interesting and newly consigned collection.
