Twelve Pre-columbian Blackware Pots: Group C
This additional group of twelve Pre-Columbian ‘blackware’ pottery pieces (LLL 435, 438, 448, 451, 599, 608, 649, 680, 681, 1047, 1092 and 1114) is also from the estate of the late Lynn Langdon. Found and collected in the mid-20th century, Lynn’s main area of interest was in the western states and cultures of Colima, Jalisco and Nayarit. The pottery items in this group, mostly illustrating ceramics with a darkened blackish brown to black burnished surface, are believed to be mostly Colima and Nayarit in origin. Bob Stroessner, past curator of the New World Department at the Denver Museum of Art, stated that the black burnished pottery of West Mexico was generally from the Inland Colima group. While an attempt has not been able to identify the cultural horizon to which each of these can be assigned, all are broadly attributed to the shaft tomb period dating c.300BC-600AD. An interesting assortment, with each piece individually photographed and priced, a numerical grade appears at the end of the first descriptive line on the photo after the item’s unique inventory number. Additional information gives the dimension of the ceramic, and a general comment concerning its condition. The price appears at the bottom of the text. 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 piece comes with a descriptive card, a map of the area in which it was found, a biographical sketch about Langdon and his collection, and finally, our certificate guaranteeing authenticity.
