An exceptional Chimu redware bottle from Peru, ca. 1100 – 1450 AD. This rare example is 9” high and features pepinos molded in relief, surrounding the upper half of the chamber. The intervening spaces are filled with groups of delicately painted birds and panels of wave designs, which symbolize water. A superbly detailed monkey adorns the spout. In excellent condition, with good mineral deposits.
