An unusual pair of handled and spouted Maya vessels from Mexico or Central America dating Ca. 100 - 600A.D. The taller of the two is 5" in height by 5 1/2" from the tip of the pouring spout to the back of the handle. They both have circular rounded bases for stability. Other than a few chips and scratches from ancient usage they are intact and as found. Very few pieces from this period have survived the centuries and are still available for purchase today. Refer to "The Maya" by Michael Coe (fifth edition)page 79...illustration "c" to verify the type.
