ORIGIN: Casas Grandes Mexico AGE. Ca. 1200 A. D. - 1400 A. D. SIZE: 7 1/2" in height by 6" at the widest diameter DESCRIPTION: A beautifully conceived and executed ovoid jar. Geometric designs include quadrangles, upside down triangles, lightning bolt elements, two "x" symbols, and fine line elements.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 for a few rim pieces that have been reattached and one hairline crack that has been stabilized. A fine and unusual example of the type.
