CULTURE: Casas Grandes ORIGIN: Northern Mexico AGE: Ca. 1200 A. D. - 1450 A. D. SIZE: 5 1/2" in height by 6" at the widest diameter. DESCRIPTION: A classic example of a Ramos Black on Tan jar with pierced handles in the form of stylized macaws. Geometric designs include stacked triangles, lightning bolt designs, fine-line work and much more. The Casas Grandes area of Northern Mexico was the premiere trading center for all of Central America as well as South America from 1200 - 1400 A. D. The main site, Paquime, traded macaws and macaw feathers far and wide. Other areas imported raw turquoise from New Mexico and Arizona and worked the pieces into fine pendants for adornment. This jar is intact but has a few scrapes and scratches from ancient usage. A fine and unusual example of the type.
