This beautifully crafted, almost 1¼ pound bronze circlet (97.56HD) was found during the Russian occupation in the ancient oasis kingdom of Bactria located in the deserts of north Afghanistan and now known as BMAC (Bactria-Margiana Archaeological Complex).

This highly burnished red ware melon jar (CLP 1) is one of my favorite items from Claudia Proto's collection of West Mexican Pre-Columbian art. 8" wide and 6 1/4" tall, it simply bubbles with fun and style in spite of the its obviously damaged condition ( in our opinion, it still deserves a quality rank of '7', with 10 being the tops). Assigned to the Colima horizon dating c,100-300AD, it suffers a bruised nose and a rim that is missing a couple of chunks with some glue to hold another in place...
