An exceptional Amazonian Indian ceramic polychrome vessel from Brazil, early 1900’s. This superb example is 8” in diameter, 5-3/4” high and comes from the Asurini tribe, which apparently is no longer a functioning tribal entity. These magnificent jars were used to store liquid foods and are coated with a natural tree resin (post-firing), which preserves the brilliant colors and makes it leak proof. In excellent condition.
