An exquisite Jamacoaque snuff jar from Ecuador, ca. 300 BC – 300 AD. It is 4-1/4” in diameter and is made in the form of a ceremonial hut. Connected to the container is a couple mounted on an attached platform. The male is depicted with one hand raised, the female with both hands held to her abdomen and her hollow body containing rattles. Superb appliqué workmanship, good blue and gold paint remnants and good mineral deposits.
