I had the great pleasure of helping to unpack the Dr. Allen Heflin collection and was able to cherry-pick what I wanted. I thought these were the most unusual of the small ceramic pieces. Heflin's writing is worn on the one in the upper left corner and the only thing I can read is that he found it in 1956. The upper center is Cautitlan, Mexico that he found on 9-14-61. Upper right is from Xico, Mexico that he found on 9-4-61. Lower left is from Teotihuacan, Mexico C150-450AD, lower center is also Teotihuacan. Lower right is Xico, Mexico that Heflin found on 4-3-71. All are noted on the back in black ink except for the bottom center one. The largest is 2 3/ 4" and the smallest is 1/ 1/4". Please e-mail for additional pictures. I see little sculptures like this popping up on eBay all the time that are obvious fakes. The Heflin collection is famous and meticulously documented. Why not buy a dandy assortment of authentic pieces.
