A wonderful condition and very elaborate ceramic vessel of the blackware type, Peruvian, before Columbus, ca. 9th.-12th. century AD, during the Chimú culture.

The stirrup vessel decorated over the entire surface with two coiled snakes, their heads also visible. The stirrup spout decorated with animals as well as a small animal leaning on the spout.

Size: 21-22 cm. tall.

Condition: Superb for type, minimal roughness to the rim of the spout, othervise perfect.
