A superb Moche gadrooned vessel from Peru, ca. 400 – 700 AD. This fine olla is 6-1/2” high and is decorated with a spotted feline on each of its four lobes. They are painted in red over cream slip and display a long tongue protruding from tooth-studded mouths. The flared neck is covered with traditional geometric designs. In excellent condition, with good mineral deposits.
