CULTURE: Mimbres LOCATION: American Southwest AGE: 900 - 1250 A.D. This exceptional example of a clapboard corrugated olla measures 14" in height by 10 1/2" in diameter. What makes it special is the fine corrugation work and the fact that it is intact. There are a couple of minor pressure cracks that have been stabilized but it has never been broken...which is rare in a piece this size. It has double lugs on each side. The thin walls and the shape and workmanship make it appear delicate. A fine intact example of the type.
