A pair of Jaguar vessels from Peru, ca. 100-1500 A.D. Compromising of two almost identical blackware vessels with spout. One is from the Moche culture and the other from the Chimu culture. An interesting insight of how two distinct cultures used the same design when creating these amazing pieces almost 800 years apart.

Measurements: Moche 2 - 7-1/2" in height x 8" in length. Chimu - 6-1/2” in height. x 8-3/4” in length.
