Vallejo Polychrome Bowl with Avian motif. Costa Rica, circa 1000 - 1400 CE. Geometric pattern surrounding wide mouth while polychrome birds surround globular body. Intact and in very good condition. 6" high. Ex: R. Nelson collection, Florida. During the last few centuries prior to the Spanish conquest, numerous ceramic styles were produced in the Greater Nicoya region of Costa Rica that were strongly inspired in form and decoration by ceramic traditions in the Maya area and central Mexico. One of those styles, known as Vallejo, emphasizes white-slipped surfaces with polychrome designs outlined by incision.
