A fine Maya glyph jar from El Salvador, ca. 500 – 800 AD. This nicely painted polychrome vessel is 5-1/2” in diameter and is decorated with a band of intricate glyphs. The lower half of the chamber is painted with connected linear designs to create the pumpkin or melon effect. The interior is painted orange and shows erosion and encrustation from the acidic contents of the burial offering it contained. Intact, with good mineral deposits and just a small stabilized stress crack.
