A gorgeous Mayan Polychrome Vase from El Salvador, Late Classic period 550 - 800 AD. This thin-walled beauty is 6-3/4" high and features two ball players wearing yokes and elaborate headdresses, each separated by traditional geometric design panels. Repetitive glyph bands on top and bottom further decorate this nicely burnished vessel. A rare motif executed in unusual detail. Repaired stress crack.
